But what fits me now wont fit me in a little while, hopefully, and actually I have no idea what size I need....hang on a minute

That is a 17" and my backside seems to have hidden the saddle, don't have a really good angle to show, but it isn't pretty.

Well as I said I would much prefer an AP, and that would probably do for intro and training, but seeing as I mainly ride dressage now I suppose I should have a dressage saddle....Oh and I have a closet full of clothes bought because they were cheap!!!

Yes, I've learned my lesson well on that one

I absolutely ADORE my Collegiate. :) I've got the Diploma close contact convertible right now and I'm just madly in love with it...I'm actually planning on buying an Intellect myself, when I have the funds! I've had a couple friends ride in it and they all agree that it's a wonderful value for what I paid for it. I got mine very lightly used (it's a 2009 model), and for the saddle + an entire gullet kit, shipping from California to here in Eastern Canada, and good quality fittings, it ended up only being about $700. Could not have been more pleased! Even a friend with a $2500 Barnsby adored it. :) I'm definitely on the Collegiate bandwagon!

I've put the deposit down on the Collegiate, $850 shipped brand new, sounds like a deal, now to find a gullet kit

Yay! Good choice :) I've heard from a couple people that Stubbens can be pretty uncomfortable. I 'poked' a few in a tack store once and they did seem quite stiff and solid. Not to say that that's a bad thing or that Stubben has bad products, just not my cup of tea!

I'd really love to know what you think of the Intellect when you get a chance to try it out. :) Like I said, I'd love to buy one myself, and I'd love to hear your opinion!

Don't hold your breath, gotta pay in installments, so it is going to be a little while before it gets here

No rush - I'm not going to order mine until I can afford it without borrowing money from my parents, which probably won't be for a good few months yet. :)
