That's a very broad question... It depends on your budget and what else you plan on doing. I personally hate All Purpose saddles but I'm strictly a hunter/jumper rider with a little dressage on the side so I stick with a close contact. An AP is not quite a jumping saddle and it's not quite a dressage saddle so it serves neither purpose particularly well. Most of the eventers I know eventually broke down and bought a separate jumping saddle (close contact) and dressage saddle. But that depends on your budget and how serious you are. If you're going to be mainly jumping I'd stick with a Close Contact.
