I had the saddle fitter out today to look at Amber and my current saddle is too wide so I am looking into buying a new one. Unfortunately it was raining when the fitter was out (it NEVER rains here, why did it have to today?!) so I wasn't able to ride in any of the saddles, but he left a Schleese jumping saddle for me to try out this week. I had never heard of this brand before, but apparently they are pretty pricey new. This one is used but in great shape and is only $900. So, my questions: Is this a good brand? It has air filled panels (flair I think he called them?). Are these typically comfortable for the horse and rider? Also, the saddle doesn't have knee rolls. I ride hunters and am starting to jump (mostly crossrails now with a few low verticals) but I plan to go up to 2'6. Will not having knee rolls be a problem? I plan to have my trainer give me her opinion too at my next lesson, but it probably won't be for another week because of the rain. Thank you in advance for your help!
EDIT: I just looked it up and it is a Schleese Ventura
