Yes, but my saddle is 16.5 and I'm 5'8 so I need like a 17.5. No matter how you look at it, I need a new saddle any way. I'm just trying to find one that I like a lot.

the PJ's have a forward flap and, in my opinion are much more for show jumping.

Antares Jumping Saddle - Close Contact Saddles from SmartPak Equine

This Antares is my all time favorite saddle... however, it is also a saddle mainly for the jumper arena. Are you supposed to get a saddle that will be suitable for all three rings?

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

I'm supposed to have a CC saddle. Other than that it doesn't really matter.

love My Saddle!

I LOVE my Devoucoux Biarritz saddle. I mean it is the best! I would never ride in another saddle. You have to get it in buffolo leather though. You will love the buffolo leather. It is more $$ but if you are paying that much anyway. It helps you stick like glue. Now there is no problom getting out of the saddle to jump, but for flat work, its sooo nice to have a saddle that is like second skin!

So I decided to go with a Devoucoux instead of the Delgrange, because for one the Delgrange saddles are in short supply and secondly, everyone seems to be raving about the Biarritz. So, that being said....this is what I just bought.

I just received the saddle today and I like it a whole lot. I'll be sure to make a post about how my first ride is in it!

I've ridden in my trainers Antares and love the feel of it.

A girl at a barn I ride at has a Butet, and it's gorgeous, with a more moderate flap.

Those are my two suggestions.
