I have a Thornhill Close Contact and it is the most comfortable saddle i've ever sat in and fits everything i've put it on from my narrow high withered TB to my huge 18h Draft looking Hanovarian. And it has lasted thru everything i've had it for 4yrs and still looks brand new and just as smooth. Not to mention it puts me in the perfect jumping or dressage position on every horse.

I have a Wintec 500 dressage saddle.. I absolutely love it, its so comfy and easy to maintain... that and with the interchangable gullet system, fitting it to my other horses is a breeze.
Am hanging out to buy a Isobell Werth saddle one of these days... my mate recently got one and I'm still jealous as ;)

I have a Passier dressage saddle, hard as a rock but does not show ANY wear and looks absolutely beautiful.
My jumping saddle is an Antares, it is the most comfortable, supple, gorgeous saddle I have ever had. It fits my horse like a glove, and its the perfect size for me. I will never part with it!

All of my saddles are close contact... a couple leaning more towards jumping though.

1. Crosby Sovereign PDN (my favorite "oldie" saddle, so soft, I'll save this plain flap guy forever!)
2. Nelson Pessoa Eq (for show)
3. Nelson Pessoa A/O (for schooling)
4. Nelson Pessoa Juiblee (old schooling saddle, now closet decor)
5. Rodrigo Pessoa A/O (too small, just sitting around)
6. Stubben Artus (haven't even tried it out yet, wide tree "just in case I ever need it")
7. Bruno Delgrange PJ (possible future jumping saddle, haven't tried it yet)
8. Bruno de Heusch The Original BdH (possible future jumping saddle)
9. Forestier Boeckelo Monoflap (maybe someday I'll do XC?)
10. Some no-name AP saddle (need to list on eBay!)
11. Some no-name pony CC saddle (need to list on eBay!)

Oh boy...now that I've listed that all out, I think I maybe have too much tack for my one horse...naaahhhhhh I just love French- and English-made tack, and can't stop buying it!!
