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!

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.

I got a like new Stubben for about $550 off of Tacktrader. If you take the time to go through the ads WITHOUT pictures you can find some really nice stuff!
