Opinion on Courbette Saddles?

I'm particularly interested in their close contact models, but any brand info/opinions would be great. Thanks!

I have their Luxor dressage saddle. I love it, it's just too big for me. The leather is fantastic and supple.

I have a Courbette close contact saddle that I've had for 10 years and bought used. It's a great saddle. It wouldn't fit a high withered horse but it fits my QH perfectly. The only thing I would critique is that the seat make my butt sore if I go on a trail ride in it because I'm just sitting for so long. It's perfect for ringwork though because I'm posting and things- not just sitting. I highly recommend them though...worth the money for sure!
