Looking for an english long distance saddle

I thought I would try here to get some opinions on english saddles.

I remember, once upon a time just putting the saddle on and going riding, never having a problem! Now it just goes on and on...

Anyway, my horse has a short back, large swinging shoulders and is pretty slim. I have had one of every kind of saddle and just put 4 of them up for sale at the local tack shop because they either didn't fit me or the horse.

I contacted the horses breeder and she said a Stubben Edelweiss CS fits her stallion & his half brother the best. He is built like the stallion, I have the mare & he is SO not built like her!

Anyway, my issue is I am mainly and english rider but have started competing in CTR & Competetive Trail. I have been riding in an endurance Aussie, which fits him just OK. I have to have a gel pad under it or there are dry spots on his shoulders. That is OK for the shorter rides & competitions I need a horn.

I would like to get another english, I talked to my instuctor about an AP but she said she wasn't crazy about them, they didn't put you in position to jump or do flat. I have a Crosby Mark VI which fits him but is in the saddle shop, maybe I should just go pick it back up.

My question, maybe for the fox hunters, when you are on a long ride, what saddle do you use? If I am only going to do very limited jumping? I'll try to add a pic of my horse but I don't think I have and true confo shots.

I'll try to get one without tack.

Thanks for your opinions!
