Needing a new saddle

Hello all! So I really need a new english close contact saddle. I'm kind of short like 5'2 and really need something that won't be too long for me. I'm looking for a saddle that is less than 2000. I kind of looked at the collegiate saddles but I feel really overwhelmed. Any ideas are welcome!

I am 5'4" and really like my Prestige Hunter D Classic for its comfy fit on both me and my horse, a high withered TB, medium width. It has a narrow twist and not too long flaps; it is a close contact with a not super forward knee roll. I got it for about half price 1500 and in great condition. I looked at alot of saddles. Most did not fit my gelding and put me in a chair seat. We have a used tack place here in town - I was able to try about 12 of the saddles. Didn't find my saddle there, instead it was on craigslist.
