Arrow Stubben or Jorge Canaves dressage saddle?!?

i need to choose between a Jorge Canaves Thompson Vienna II dressage saddle black leather dressage saddle in 17" seat, with Wide Tree for 350$ or a Stubben Colombo, 17.5 medium tree at 450$ - both look in good condition. Which one is the better deal?!? i will try both for fit but in case they both fit i was wondering if anyone had opinions about those saddles.. thx!

I don't know about the deal, but I love my Vienna II (that puts me in a good position and a good fit for my butt) over several Stubbens I tried (they threw me off the balance and felt like a rock under my butt). Of course, it's just a personal preference.

Try both and go with what is the best fit for you and the horse, not what is the best deal. Frankly I doubt they'll feel similar to you. Will be interesting to hear your opinion when you'll try!

As Val stated, it's really personal preference if they both fit your horse. Both of them are a good deal, but if you personally hate riding in one, it won't be worth whatever you paid for it.

I'm used to a firmer seat, so that's what I prefer. Plus, my TB looks fabboo in his Stubben.
