There not terribly expensive but i would love to have a Crates show saddle. A friend has one and unlike most show saddles, they are incredibly comfortable and really hold up. Heres a link to the Crates site
Crates Leather | Hand-Crafted Saddlery | Chattanooga, TN | Saddles: Show

Ofcourse, I would love a custom saddle by a real craftsman but I switch horses so much...

Well... I can't even tell. I have Pessoa and love it. I tried something like 20 english saddles in big store (including very expensive ones like Butet) and very few actually fit my butt ($5K Butet didn't ). Same with the Western saddles - tried many and was hard to find one. I guess I'm very picky.

I'd really want to try Antares jumping saddle (custom made), but it's out of my price range... I'd also want to own Rembrandt dressage as trail saddle.

Oooh tough choice...

- I sat in one of these at the horse show in Del Mar. I fell in love

2. Prestige Italy - Selle per cavalli - Produzione selle su misura
- One of the girls owns one where I take lessons and she let me borrow it a couple times. I love it.

3. Albion Saddlemakers
- I have found Albion saddles to be extremely comfortable. I haven't ever ridden in this particular model but I would venture to guess it is quite comfortable..

Black Country! After having owned a saddle costing twice as much as these, I'd love to have a tack room full of them!

Antares, Butet, Devoucoux, Tad Coffin, and Tucker.

I don't ride Western, but those Tucker English rigged Plantation and Endurance saddles are to die for.
