I personally love love LOVE my collegiate saddle. I beleive it is a finalist. I stumbled upon it at a local tack shop and bought it used for $450. It is my first saddle and i love it to pieces. its so comfortable, fits me perfectly, and fits every horse that i have tried it on. My mom even offered to buy me a new bevel saddle and i laughed and said no. thats how much i love this saddle

HorseLoveForever - If it fits every horse you've tried it on, I'm willing to bet it's one of the older makes. Those things are fabulous, and you really can't put a price on them - never, and I repeat, NEVER get rid of it!

Unfortunately, the saddle that I purchased is too narrow, so I'm selling it. After I cleaned it up and oiled it, it looked fabulous, and makes me even more sad that I have to sell it!

The outside went from looking like this...

to this!

And the underside of the flap, which used to look like this...

Now looks like this!

It gleams next to all of the other consignment saddles. Unfortunately, anyone who has been keeping up with the saddle world (i.e. previously not me), would know that since Collegiate was taken over by Weatherbeeta, the saddles are not made the same, and now have an extraordinarily narrow gullet, which makes it unlikely to fit very many horses, although I'm sure it would do fine on most Thoroughbreds.
