Exclamation Saddle Help! URGENT!!! Do you know??

HELP!!!! PLEASE!!!!! Ok so I am an incredibly tall and was always having trouble finding a saddle and money issues also apply so I have been using my sister's saddle which is a Bates Close Contact long flap and my leg just and I mean JUST makes it on the flap so we figured the forward flap version would do fine, so I found a cheap used one that was in great shape but the person hasn't replied and my sister wants her saddle back, so I am entering to win a free saddle and when I was filling out the form I came across terms I did not know. The terms are: Custom Saddle, Wolfgang Saddle, Icon Saddle, and Signature saddle. I was wondering if maybe anyone knew what those are and could possibly tell me please??

I'm really tall and have super long legs. I have the Dover Circuit Elite EQ which is made for longer legged riders.. On sale its around 800 something at Dover and they will send you a trial saddle if you want to try it out!

my friend also has that saddle and I tried it and my leg is still off and I didn't like the seat, I fell in love with the bates through riding in my sister's seat and heck i'll fit but thank you anyway.

I believe that they are all different types of Dressage Saddles. It would be the different style names of the saddles available by the company or store who is giving away the free saddle. Look up the company or store on the internet and check out their saddles to see which style you like best before checking one off.

There is nothing URGENT about a saddle that you don't own yet. Take a breathe a minute.

It is far more important that you saddle fits your horse and I would suggest that you figure this out first. Your fitting of a saddle is a small part of the equation.

That was my thought too.

I had a Crosby Eventer in for stitching and just out of curiosity I measure the length of the flaps against an a/p. There was a 2,1/" difference, the Eventer being the longer.
