Do I buy it???

Horse & Rider, ETC.: M Toulouse Simone All Purpose English Saddle

There is a M. Toulouse Simone AP Saddle for $450 new. Does anyone have any info on them? It is priced at much less than I have seen it other places. It says it is a clearance price, and there is a week long trial period, after which I can return it if I don't ruin it. Do you think this price will still be the same tomorrow? Or do I jump on it, and then ask my trainer?

I have a saddle with the similar shape of that one.
Heres the thing. Good price, the saddle has nice flocking and a soft seat.
However...the leg flaps tend to need lots of conditioning, oiling, and rolling. **Also if you are jumping, the seat will be too deep. My saddle like this also had a deep seat and is the reason for why it is also being sold. Deep seats don't allow for your butt to go back and and stay flat when you are jumping. Instead your butt hits the top of the cantle.

It may or may not be worth it, depending on the shipping and handling, and shape of the saddle for your type of work. Ill let some other more experienced saddle shoppers help you decide. Hope everything works out fine...

Anyone have any recommendations on an Ovation?? I also really like this saddle...especially since it is available in black, and I seriously prefer black to browns.

Again, seems like a nice saddle, but the cantle is too high for jumping. The long flap is nice if you want to do some occasional dressage/flat work.
The leather on this one looks more pliable, but it seems a bit pricey too me for whatever reason. I guess cause Im used to buying used tack.

I haven't started jumping, but I definitely want to learn. I have more of a mind for dressage though. I want a saddle that will give me the ability of both.
