I'd definitely be going used if I bought any of the aforementioned saddles. XD Custom is just plain out. I can't afford it, and I don't feel like spending more money on a saddle than I did on my horse is reasonable for me. If I were eventing prelim or above, maybe I'd look into it. Right now, going BN/N/T level, I'll stick to something that's comfy and fits me well enough.
Looking at the new Wintec 500 Jump... I'm not sold on it because it seems "clunky" to me. I've sat in it and, with all the saddles that the two local tack stores carry, it's the only one that leaves me with flap to spare in front of my leg if I put my stirrups up high enough to jump. I may just have to compromise aesthetics for function.
I looked at the Courbette Vison- I can only find the AP version...? Can someone link to the CC/Jumping version? Is there one?
