Good English Saddle Suggestions To Buy

So my mom is finally going to let me get a saddle for Christmas! But I have to do the research for it. So I am looking for good brands, and I would like suggestions on what brand of saddle I should get. My price range is $200-$1200. I am looking for an all purpose english riding saddle. If you could find a direct link for me that would be great. I would love a new or used saddle.

That's quite a price range. You want used? For what kind of horse? For what use? What size seat? Tree size? (N, M, W)

See if you can have a saddle fitter come out and try a lot of different saddles on your horse for fit (yours and his! It needs to to work for you both). I can't really suggest any brands, as all are made with a different shape of horse in mind.

CCS, do you jump? If so I'd look into A/P with more forward flaps. I also agree with calling saddle fitter out to find something that fits your horse and your own rear.

Sorry. Yes, I will be jumping in it, but I would also like to be able to do small dressage shows. For a smaller price range, arround $1000. I need the saddle to be pretty wide, to fit my Haflinger horse, who has a fairly large barrel.
About the saddle fitter, I will have one come out. Thanks

Well , if you plan on doing some dressage, don't get a forward flap type. You'll have to stay kind of in the middle if you hope to get buy for both things in one saddle.

I wonder if it would make more sense to split the $1000 and find two nice used saddles--one jumping and one dressage. In general, I'm not a fan of A/P saddles, and having two saddles designed for what you're doing would be a huge plus.

@equiniphile I really like that idea. Thank you

With $1000 you can find a very decent saddle. You can look into Collegiate Eventing saddles, I'd also look into something used: Passier, County, Thornhill, Duett. Frankly I'm not fan of Stubben (plus I don't think it's designed towards wider horses), but lots of people love it.

For wider horse Thornhill, Duett, and Black Country seem to be a good fit.
