And here we are.

If money was no object, what saddle/tack set would you go out and buy?
Believe it or not, this was actually the very first English saddle I ever sat on.
|What can I say? I'm an overachiever.|
True it has the weird carbon panels some find offputting and ugly, but comfy. It's also apparently really well made to support the rider's leg and help with position, as well as being more comfortable for the horse. And as a bonus, comfy gel seat (it was really cushy, ok?).
However, some lazy internet research (read: checking one forum link when I couldn't easily find a price on their website), indicates the saddle I had pictured in the back of my mind was called a CWD 2G, and it is WAAAAY above my price range. I saw a few answers, and it depends heavily on which options you choose but it could be anywhere from $4500-$6000 or maybe more or less (I was really not feeling this whole doing research thing today).
Maybe someday. Then again, I did pay $100 for my saddle, so it's preeeetty unlikely I would actually pony up that much cash (pun intended) for a 2G.
