Sometime in the near future I'm planning on buying a close contact saddle. It would be used mostly for schooling but also some showing in mostly equitation, but also possibly hunters or jumpers. I'm not sure if any of this matters but I've never bought a saddle before so I'm just throwing it all out there.
I can't really afford something over $1000. Does anyone have a recommendation of a good close contact saddle I can get for that price (or slightly more that I might be able to find used)? I'd like something that doesn't look or feel too cheap, will last a while, and is comfortable to ride in. I know I can't get super high quality for that price but what's the best I could do?
Thanks in advance!
