yes, either saddles are like in the 5K new
not even possible for me but some barely used are drop to 3K, so it's already a cut but it's a lot, I would want to make sure they are good saddles before even considering buying one.
now if I had to choose between both? I would probably go for Schleese, because of the adjustable tree and I heard it was much better than the adjustable tree for wintec, bates, and even the Toulouse that came out.
I like hoe the gullet is nicely " spread" on the Schleese to not touch the spine of the horse
but the CWD looks really good too, and I could probably get it cheaper from France ? not sure about that.
I found this website on another forum and the lady who own the business has some extremely goof reviews, and excellent saddles as well. Fine Used Saddles | Best French, German, & English Saddles for Sale | Current Availability
I really love the Schleese Wave french leather, and the infinity is looking good too. these are wool flocked
I really love the CWD french monoflap too . this one is foam flocked
For the overpricing I really dont know either, why are they so expensive? what is so GREAT about them that is not comparable to let's say a 1K or 2K saddle?
