Courbette Alpina- Good or Bad?

I am looking to buy another saddle, because the one I have now doesn't fit my horse. I am looking at a courbette alpina that is in my price range, but I know nothing about them. I have a thin thoroughbred and I do hunters, so I don't want an all-purpose saddle. Please let me know your opinion, and be blunt, I don't want to waste my money on something cheap and uncomfortable!!

I have a Courbette, and I like it well enough. It's not an Alpina, so I can't give an opinion on that particular saddle, but the brand overall is quality. Mine was made in Switzerland, & generally it's a safe bet that you'll be getting a good saddle if they're Swiss, German, or English made. It's comfy & has held up well (at least 20 years old, I believe). Courbette's also tend to run a bit narrow, which might be good for your TB.

I have always used Courbettes. I have not ridden in an Alpina, I use the Courbette Axxis Close Contact. I really like it.
