Marcel Toulouse saddle help

I want to get a new hunt seat saddle. My Circuit Close Contact isn't fitting my horse too well, and I would like something of a better quality. I have been looking at Marcel Toulouse and trying to weed out the ones that wouldn't be good for me. I'm 5'9" with long legs. I would like probably a 17" seat (I have a 16.5 now) but the flaps have to be long enough. I ride a Quarter horse and do low level HUS and some jumping, not over 2' right now, but mainly flatwork. This saddle would be for home and shows. I'm considering the Laura B, Denisse, and Annice. I want something that looks like a hunter saddle, and I don't need a really deep seat or very forward flap. The Circuit I have right now is the look and style that I like, but I don't like the particular saddle. So, what are your opinions on M. Toulouse? Which one/ones would you recommend for me to order and test ride?

I love Marcel Toulouse saddles, especially the newer ones. The leather is just so soft.

You say you have long legs but you don't need a forward flap. Do you have a proportionate thigh-calf or is one longer than the other. If you're confident you don't need a very forward flap to accommodate your long leg, the Annice should work well for you. Someone at college had one and she had very long legs but didn't need a forward flap. The Annice does not have a forward flap by any means. I think she also got the model that has a longer flap vertically, so that may be something you'd want to look into. :)
