Question Looking for new/used english saddle and asking for opinions on brands and models

Hello

I am looking for a new/used english saddle. I usually ride on the flat but am looking to start jumping soon. I need something that has a longer fender because I typically ride with longer sturrips and has knee rolls. I am also looking for the saddle to have a gullet changing system because I plan on going to college soon and will be riding many horses. If you have any brands and models you could recomend it would be most appreiciated!

It depends very much on your price point. For changable gullets the best by far is Bates (leather) or Wintec (synthetic). An all purpose would probably be the best. Bates/Wintec just released their new models and they look like the gullets would be super easy to change.

This is their new one:


This is the older version that I have:

Go wintec 2000! I have that one and the gullet is super easy to change. Also my wintec 5000 dressage is really good too but my jumping one that I don't use much is really hard because the screws are shorter :(
I personally think the new wintec range is pretty ugly. They look too bulky to me

I'm not a lover of synthetic saddles. However, I do have a Wintec 2000 which is about 10 years old and I love it.

I haven't used their jumping saddles though I know a few kids who think they are great.

I think, though, a lot of recent models in various brands can have their gullet changed by a saddler - not necessarily easy but do-able.
