Since I am a leather "Purist", I really wanted a saddle exactly like my Flex Rider except in brown leather, finally found it with a Collegiate Senior, can't beat the smell of leather!

Well the only reason I am digging the whole T8 deal is because it has a leather seat and knee rolls. And doesn't have that cheap look synthetics usually have. I don't know... we shall see when I get there I guess!

Oh, I know you were joking. I'm not sarcastic humor impaired like some folks.

So, now that I know my Stubben is safe because it's too wide, do I need to warn others not to let you know they have one?

I LOVED my Thorowgood Maxam, fully synthetic, but such a nice saddle, comfortable, secure, warm even in the cold weather, just awesome.

The saddle snob in me is still turning her nose up. I am a Schleese and CWD person. But my bank account will file for divorce if I spend that kind of money. The Schleese rep is keeping an eye out for the Eagle cross country for me. But who knows how long that will take and if it will be in my budget.

What about used, NBE? I got my Stubben for a great price, and I love that it's vintage. My ultimate goal is a German made one, but my almost 40 y/o Swiss made rocks.

That is what I have been looking for. There is almost no point in buying a Schleese new, they are fully adjustable anyway and they hold their value. Which is where the issue comes. They hold their value. Used Schleeses are between $2000 - $3500. Same with CWD. I've eyed Bates but after hearing they tip people forward that wont work.

I like Stubbens but they generally don't fit me well.

I haven't thrown in the towel. But I keep thinking that where the Thorowgood is adjustable when I open my own school in a couple years I can retire it to the school as I will have gotten the money for the saddle I want. Sadly I am just in a rush right now to get one as "my" saddle is now being used on a new horse at our barn. My saddle came with my horse on a loan, its a Schleese fit to her. But since another horse needs it(and its my coaches so I can't say no) we keep running into the "who is riding bareback today?" game. Not something I am open to doing on bratty as she is not a very happy girl in the winter. None of the saddles in our barn fit bratty mare either so now I am faced with needing a new saddle quicker then I thought

Ah, gotcha! Yes, if you can get one that can be used for the school once you get the saddle you really want, I can see why you're looking at Thorowgoods.
