Smile Wanting a saddle and bridle

I ride english. I am a hunter jumper. I ride thoroughbreds and arabians and quarter horses but I'm leasing a thoroughbred. I would like to sometime acquire my very own saddle and bridle. I have grooming, saddle pad, and halter and lead rope. I also of course have riding clothes :P I was wondering what are some recommended brands? And what do you have and do you like it? I would really like if the bridle wasn't more than 150$ and the saddle under 600$ if possible, thanks!

Well since your wide variety of horse I would say a wintec.
I have a wintec. It's an all purpose, but they have different models.
Wintecs have the changeable gullet system, so I can ride the narrowest TB we have, the chunkiest quarter horse, and whatever else we have.

I love wintecs because they're comfortable, super durable, and nicely priced.

They are synthetic though, if that's not what you're looking for, then I'm not the best person.
I have an older Crump saddle. I love it to death, but I couldn't tell you any good brands
Aside from stubben.. ahhah I want one!

I'm sure you could find saddles cheaper on here, in the tack classifieds, or on ebay

What's CC?

Close contact. There's less saddle.
Here's pictures of my two saddles. My wintec first and my crump second
The wintec is AP (all purpose) so the seat comes up higher, there's knee rolls, and the panels are wider.
The crump is CC (close contact) so the seat is flatter, mine has no knee rolls, and the panels are less wide

I love the looks of the second saddle! How much did you pay for it? I will defiantly take a look at them:)

Since you're into jumping
I would recommend this wintec

My friend has had this same saddle for a few years, and it still looks and feels brand new
