    A little more information would be helpful. What level do you ride at/expect to ride at, what type of horse do you have, what is your budget, what type of jumping saddle you you prefer, etc.

    I am assuming (risky, I know) that you are in some sort of lesson program and would suggest you try some out and figure out what you like. That is the best place to start, IMO.

    I jump about two feet, I am in a lesson program, the horse I ride is about 16 hands, and my budget is anywhere up to maybe about $600. I am expecting to go up to 3 feet in the next year or so.

    You ride lesson horses. The last thing you want to do is buy a saddle to fit that ONE horse. Like I said-you might want to look at something that will fit a variety of horses, since you will not always ride the same one, and one that will fit you as you grow. You need to figure out what type YOU like, whether it is a close contact, or more of an A/P seat. Also need to decide your preference with knee rolls, etc. Like I said, I would suggest you try different saddles in your lessons.
