Saddle opinions

Im thinking about trading/selling my saddle and buying a new one. Anyone have opinions on good saddles?
I ride hunter/jumper. I was looking at M. Toulouse or Henri de Rivel, but also Kincade or Camelot- on the cheaper end. Dover had reviews that the Camelot was pretty good but what do you guys think?

It would help to have an idea of a price range you would like to be in, as well as if there are any particular fit issues for you or your horse, since certain saddle brand styles fit differently.

I ride a 16h irish sport horse mainly, pretty normal withers height, fits my medium tree saddle. I want something close contact for hunter/jumper of course.

Irish horses tend to be big shouldered, legacy of their ID ancestry. Please don't buy a foam/felt panel CC of whatever make - it won't fit very well. And I'm surprised he's medium, though it's not unknown.

Elven, personally I'd stay away from Camelot or Kincade. It would be much better idea to look at the used one but a good brand instead.

P.S. I love my MT. Another similar price range you can look into is Collegiate. And I've heard very mixed feedback about HDR saddles.

Hehe I've ridden in my old trainers MT and it was AMAZING! But I could do with saving as much money as I can while getting something good
