Just curious, what English saddle do you think is the best of all time? Feel free to post pictures.

I honestly love my Tad Coffin like no other haha.

That's mine, but the picture is almost 4 years old.

I love my kinkade but someday I want to get a nice Crosby. I've heard they're really good.

In terms of what? In terms of materials and craftsmanship right NOW, i'd say Black Country. In terms of the above in the past, I'd say stubben. You're never going to find a 50+ year old calf saddle still in daily use, but there's a whole lot of stubbens that are still kicking and past half a century old.

bothies or byres or barns, or oot amangst the hay,and if the weather does permit, I'm happy a' the day.

In this order:
- Butet
- P. Jolicoeur
- Crosby

Butet saddles last forever and remain in there quality. They are made out of french leather, it is soft but holds up to wear and tear very well. The one i have is a 1993, everything on it is the original and it has many more years to live.

If you have original billets on a 20 year old saddle you're crazy :O
though tbh a quality job would leave no trace of it being taken apart xD

I loove my Equipe. I have to be so careful with my damn fingernails around that thing. Nicest saddle I've owned.

Equipe and CWD are up there in my favourites that I've ridden in. Amerigo and Prestige are nice as well.

I want to try a Delgrange or Devoucoux, see what they're like.

Reactor Panel saddles. I can't afford my own, but my trainer has several that I borrow all the time and it's fantastic. I've never sat in a saddle that fits so well and lets you feel your horses back so well :D

When I can afford it I want this one:

I will take pics next time I bring it home to post. It may have been a nice repair job, but most all of it is original.

Thats the beauty of saddlery, most of the people fixing saddles also can build them from the tree up so most repairs are completely invisible :D. Well, most repairs done by someone who knows what they're doing, I've seen some interesting screw ups before, however not often xD. If my saddle was home I'd take a picture of it to show you really can't tell heehee except its A. at the barn and B. 5.20 am and I'm not going to go get it now xD
