Before I got my saddle (and after my riding accident in my collegiate) I rode/borrowed a lot of different saddles.

My faves were the Antares and Butet. But on the cheaper but still on the nicer end of the spectrum I really really liked Stubbens, and I totally recommend.

There is actually a woman in Alameda, who owns a saddle company called Reactor Panel. I don't know how much they cost, but you can test ride them for 2 weeks and they come out and do a saddle fitting. So it might be something to check out. Also BayEquest is awesome, lots of people are selling higher end saddles like the Butet, Antares and County for 1/3rd the price of what they are worth. It might be in your best interest to hold out, save 500 more dollars to make an offer on a used High End saddle.

So my trainer just sold one of our ponies and part of that sale included a 16.5 Crosby. I think that's what size you said you rode in. Anyways you can come try it or I think she might be putting it on consignment at Happy Trails, though you'd probably get it for cheaper if you just get it from her, since you know consignment stores make consignment lol

oh I was looking at a Crosby .. what do you think of this one?

Also I went down to happy trails and they have a Stubben that I am in love with the way it feels, I sat in it and actually put in and offer and they are waiting for the owner to call them back ...

I also sat in a B and B ... I had never heard of them but I loved the way it looked but it didn't hold me as well at the Stubben ...

Everything gets darker with oiling and use. Just strip it and oil it when you bring it home, really love on it with the oil like 2-3 coats.

I guess you could just save your pennies like other people do. I know that's the way I can afford things.

Look on ebay ! I just got an m toulouse for $550....im penny pinching too, but right now I have a wide tree collegiate [foam flocked ICK that doesnt fit any of the million horses I ride =/]

got a Stubben off E-bay and I should be here by the end of next week :) it is darker leather too which is what I wanted yay!

Void: the Stubben at Happy Trails was well used just still really orange, oil can do wonders though I am not sure how much darker this saddle would have gotten
