Oops, I thought I'd included Pelham Saddlery as well. They have a HUGE selection of used saddles you can browse through to maybe get some more ideas. They allow trials.

I wish we could edit our posts so we didn't have to double-post so often

I'll stick with the saddles because i'm running late on my break time and I can only do one. I really like that you are getting a close contact. They are fine for flat work and if you don't like a deep seat for jumping (it can be restricting) they are great saddles. I have used bates and wintecs my whole life and I really love them. The wintec cc and bates cc are almost the same thing but one is in synthetic and the other is leather. I would go with bates out of your 3 options. they are really comfy hardy saddles. And if you condition them they get even more comforable.

Thank you everyone for the help! I'm gonna measure Maggie on Tuesday and talk to my instructor about some things and then keep you guys posted! I'll probably have a million questions, about tack and like everything else, as I've never bought a horse before! So excited!
