the best of the best in my opinion are either CWD or Butet. however, these can get quite expensive. better priced saddles that are still really good include Pessoa, Meyers, HDR, or maybe Bates. i have tried the Pessoas and Meyers and both are amazing. however, i own a butet and two cwds and they are fantastic, so comfy and fit my horses v well, not to mention they look great in the show ring.
