In search of a new saddle
So at the moment, I have two saddles, neither of which seem to be right for what I am doing. I have an ovation, which I don't feel secure in on my horse, he's built a little funny, big on top then dips in, I'm 5'2 and the blocks are kind of big so I have a hard time wrapping my legs around him. My other saddle is an old Beval, really flat eq saddle, small blocks so I feel more secure from my leg, however, because it is so flat there is no support over the bigger fences, my horse jumps really round :-).
Sorry for the novel, but, anyone have any good suggestions for a jumping saddle? I was looking at a Marcel Toulousse (sp?), that is a monoflap, that could hopefully help with my short legs.
I love them, they are just so **** expensive lol
Haha yes they are really really expensive but there's nothing else like them... once you ride in one, no other saddle is ever the same again xD
But you can look on eBay... sometimes a used one will go for really cheap(:
I'll have to look into the used ones. I rode a couple horses for people that had them and I wanted one ever since.
I haven't heard of that one? Is it a particular saddle or brand?
Devoucoux is a brand, it's amazing
CWD, without a doubt the dreamiest saddle I've ever ridden in! I'm saving my pennies for one

I just bought a m toulouse florina I love it, very secure ride! If you need more info message me :]
I know a lot of people who love the new Pessoa Legacy. I've seen some Devoucouxs on HorseClicks for 2k. Stackhouses and Delgranges are around that price used as well. I think the Toulouses are going to feel like a step down from your Butet; many people feel they max out around 3'.
