Red face More info on saddles for me and my horse, please?

Now I did post in Trail riding about an endurance saddle.( Endurance saddle for the trail.. help? ) However maybe I need some more help and suggestions. I have an ASB and this saddle would be my everything saddle. I really do like the style and think it holds everything I would need but what about my horse? Maybe there are similar saddles that may fit both our needs better? I am up for any suggestions or saddles. I don't have any real preference. I just need it to have a lot of padding for me and of course be comfortable for Ziggy. Plus++ would be that the saddle would have pockets/pouches already built in. Have lots of hooks to possibly attach gear. Have a bright color such as blue. Mainly because I like having more color on my horse so that people can see him from afar. It needs to be able to last at least 5 years from daily use. I can't think of much else really.

Please help, I have no idea what to look for in saddles. Just know what I need and want in one.

It needs to fit your horse & you first. You could always have one custom made to get all the extras you want.

Try to get a fairly good fit for your horse. What could be like a custom fit today won't be in several weeks time as a horse's back changes according to fitness levels. Even if he maintained the same fitness he is changing with age, so don't look for a perfect fit. Do buy the absolute best quality you can afford. Stay away from asian made saddles. They often look nice but are junk and can sore up a horse.

Tucker has a really nice line of trail saddles in variations on both a western type and an english type.

The only other saddles I have seen with most of my criteria is Abetta. How comfortable are they though?
