I'm currently on the hunt for a new saddle. My Pessoa Gen X just doesn't fit my Warmblood quite right, so I've found a few options.
The first is a used M. Toulouse Annice DL (medium tree). I was just wondering if anyone had ridden in this saddle or had anything to say about it? I'm quite familiar with the Premia, but this one is new to me. I found it for a steal at the local tack shop and have it on trial for a few days. I would love to get feedback on the saddle!
The second is a new Collegiate Alumni Convertible Saddle (regular tree). My best friend has the same saddle and likes it. She says it fits her wide large pony and other wide horses she rides, but I'm wondering if it would fit my slightly wide, very uphill horse? This saddle is also a bargain. I'm not too familiar with the saddle, so I would really love if you could share your experience/knowledge.
The only catch is, I'm on a bit of a crunched time frame. I'm going to look at the Collegiate on Thursday and the trial on the Toulouse ends Friday.
I was just wondering which of the two you guys would think to be the better option? They're both real bargains but I don't know which to chose. Any suggestions/comments/etc. would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much!
