Smile Lokking for a Saddle! Antares! I Need Help!

The saddle I have now (an A/O Pessoa) is just to slippery!!! It seems like the more I clean, condition and oil it, the more slippery it gets! I have run out of patience with it and I am now looking for a new (used ) saddle.

I have been looking at the brand Antares. They have absolutley GORGEOUS saddles!!! But...they are a bit pricey for my budget.

So, I need some suggestions. I want the leather to be especially soft, supple, and "grippy" haha! I'm sick of riding in a slippery saddle!

Thanks!!!

MT Toulouse (if it'll fit your horse). I have Claudine model and leather is nice, soft, and grippy(!). BTW, I know what you are saying about Pessoa - yes, they are quite slippery (I owned one for while).
