I like intrepid saddles because they adjust the gullet and the flocking can be added or taken away as your horse gains muscle mass or losses muscle mass.
I love Bates saddles and Marcel Toulouse! For bridles I LOVE passier but if you want something more affordable on bridles & reins .com has some really nice bridles for fairly cheap!
Antares for saddles and I like the options Dyon has for bridles.
I like Pessog, because it is durable and the leather is high quality. Also CWD, but that tends to be very expensive.
