Post What saddle should I get?

I've been looking at some English saddles and have decied I should get an all-purpose saddle.I'm looking for one under $600.I found these online and was wondering what you thought of them.

St. Lourdes Modena A/P Saddle - Statelinetack.com

Jorge Canaves All Purpose Berlin Saddle (this one is closer to $900 but I like it)

Collegiate Dignitary All Purpose - Dressage Saddles from SmartPak Equine

Big Dee's Tack & Vet Supplies | Closeout, Clearance & Overstock Items! | MAGIC ALL PURPOSE SADDLE VSD


Could you tell me what ones you like and recommend some good saddles or websites to look for?Thanks!

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

I actually have Collegiate Dignitary A/P for over year. It fits both my mares, nice to sit in and has lots of padding. However it rather big (bulky) and deep (seat-wise). I think it's great for trail riding, but I'm not very positive it's all that great for ring work. So I just got used CC for that.

I don't know about other models you posted, but have you looked into Wintec? It'll be in your price range (new under $600) and they are decent saddles.

I don't know any of those brand names, but the first two saddles are the sort of thing you're looking for, the last one is really only suitable for flat work, I have a VSD and won't be using it for jumping!

does it have to be new? if not then go to ebay or craigslist... i just got a Stubben for $550 on ebay and it normally retails for over $3000.

l have a Collegiate and a Stubben and I love then both. HDR and Crosby's are good as well.
