Show in what you want, just get the best quality for your money. There's been lots of black and 2-tone this year. I know people have done dark brown but haven't seen it personally. The light oil saddle "trend" was a great business move by saddle makers to require those showing heavily to need a new one to keep up as theirs darkened every couple years.

I don't anyone that I show with that buys a new saddle every couple of years because their's has darkened. When you are paying good money on a show saddle, you keep it for a VERY long time. The saddle makers went to light oil because that is what people wanted....something different from dark oil or black.

That's straight from the horses mouth..
I know lots of people who have replaced saddles every year,2,3 to keep up with the trend. if their finances allow for it, that's their prerogative. I got a blue ribbon circa 1994 about 10 years ago, in very very good condition. it'll be updated when i hit the lottery or find a sugar daddy, and neither have high odds LOL.

I wish people would replace their Saddles every few years

When you build them to last 50 plus years, it only happens when they get a new Horse.
