I have quite the list of brands I will consider, and this search is rather desperate now that my horse is starting act sore in the saddle I am currently borrowing. Collegiate close contact, bates close contact, wintec close contact. All of those must be the close contact due to tree shape. They also seem to fit me a bit small so must be the 17.5 or 18 inch seat. Need the wide gullet and would love if it came with all the gullets!
Will also consider a toulouse or a phillipe fontaine, also in the wide tree with a 17.5 or 18 inch seat.
Price range is around $500, may go up to $600 for something I really like.
