It depends on the horse. I swap between an old style Anky (can't stand the new ones!), an old Kieffer and a wintec for the in betweens that are still building up muscle.

I adore old style County's, Otto Schuemarkers (sp?), Crosby, and many of the Kieffers

I'm in hunters so it is a tie between Devoucoux, Antares and CWD. Devoucoux and CWD in all calf leather feels like BUTTER! Mmmm...I'm getting saddle fitted on xmas eve with Devoucoux rep to try out their saddles. Cannot wait. I despise my Pessoa Gen X...I hurt everywhere after riding in it. I am sure my horse does, too. Also considered a new County Stabilizer but could not get a hold of rep after 2 months of leaving messages...they were my first choice but oh well..they snooze they lose.

I always ride in Bates Maestros for dressage and have 6 of them at home that I have in varying sized gullets to fit all my different horses. I may actually marry them all - starting a petition to make it legal ROFL.

I am working with a fitter right now.
The one I will purchase is on
Go to dressage and look at the Wolfgang Solo Long Roll.
It is sooo comfortable!
I am going to start looking for another saddle to use for hunters.

Collegiates! I have a collegiate dressage and a collegiate cc, and I use to own a collegiate senior event. I really like how they fit my QHs. For my TB I splurged and got a stubben, which I liked a lot, but it really only fit him so it had to go when he did.

I like wintec as well, they are great since I ride a bunch of different "thicknesses" of horses.

For western I really like Abettas (more than I thought I would). I am using the BO's but someday I hope to find one that I can afford for myself.

Grand Gilbert Nicole or a Albion would be my first picks. I used to ride in a trainer's nicole a while ago and loved it.

I have an HDR c/c. One of the h/j saddles they made when they first got popular around here (like 10 years ago.) It still looks pretty new. I have thorowgood with the fish system. I dispise wintecs and most synthetic saddles though.
