English saddle bag recommendations?

Does anyone have any recommendations for saddle bags for an English saddle? Can I just use regular Western cantle bags? I found one that I like the looks of, but what do you guys think?

Are you aware they make English saddle pads that have pockets? Those would be good for trail riding, too.

I am aware of that and I REALLY want one, but I can't seem to find one under $60 and I don't have that much to spend right now. The thing I liked about the saddlebags I linked to is that they have holders for water bottles. I've seen the pads you're talking about and those pockets aren't really big enough to hold a water bottle (or if they are, that's about all they can hold).

If you have a Greenhawk in your area, they sell saddle pads with pockets that can hold a lot, but probably less than saddle bags, but for much less than 60$ if I remember correctly :)

Out of the stuff posted so far, I like your original find better. They also make ones that clip to your d-rings on the front, but I'm on my phone so I can't link to anything.

Okay, HOW did I miss those on eBay?!

I hear ya about the phone thing...our BO is ADAMANT about carrying your phone ON YOU when you go on a trail ride. His reasoning? "What if you lose your horse?" Can't beat good ole cowboy logic!
