Event Saddle Options
I'm looking to get a new saddle for eventing that would be both for the show jumping and cross country phases. I currently own a pessoa but it is getting older and I am looking for something more conventional. Price does matter but I would be willing to save up for something nice. Thanks.

Courbette has some nice jumping phase eventing saddles. They are very nice quality, and you can often find them used at a good price.

They are pricey, but the Frank Baines saddles are great for Cross Country and Show Jumping.

The Stubben Roxanne is a good one too:

I am getting a Stubben from my trainer, it is used but PERFECT! I am an eventer, but I also do hunter show. Most of us use Stubbens or Battes saddles.

I'm in a Pessoa GenX right now, but the next horse i'm getting will be off the track, so I doubt my QH's MW tree will fit the new one. So, i'll be getting new saddles too.

I'm definitely looking at the HDR monoflaps and just regular cc vegas, possibly toulouses but i'm not sure about them, i have to ride in one again. Bates are nice also.

I've always been told that these were the very best in eventing saddles, but I do show hunters so I wouldn't know for sure. However, I absolutely love the Devoucoux Biarritz that I use to ride in. It will definitely be very pricey, but the quality is great and the resale is always really fast and easy. Plus, they fit a wide variety of horses.
