I have been looking at saddles (don't have a horse atm)
Really just out of curiosity so I was wondering if anyone had any experiences with the eureka leather saddles?

I've never heard of that brand so I just looked them up.

They look very uncomfortable. They have that general purpose shape which is useless for dressage and useless for jumping, and the new ones are very inexpensive which means that they're not very well made. I would look for a higher quality saddle on consignment. Better to buy used than new.

Used is great, but definitely beware of old leather saddles. They are wonderful and broken in, and there's just something amazing about riding in a saddle older than you are, especially if it's a high-quality brand. BUT often they need to be re flocked, at least. Possibly even have the billings replaced. And re flocking is, around here any way, $150 - $300. Get an old high quality saddle (That fits your horse!!!!!) for about $100, then put a few hundred more into it to make sure you're not damaging your horse with hard-as-rock wool in the panels, or take that money and put it towards a new (or used) Wintec or Bates, which are super adjustable.

I really love Pessoa saddles, I’ve had some used ones which where great, and I like the new ones too. Bates are great too. I don’t really like Wintec, and some of those are synthetic.

Yes, my friend got one and she made sure it was the right size and had a good saddle pad and it hurt her horse back after a week. Her horse got super stiff and sore. And 3 days after she started riding in her old saddle her horse went back to normal and was good as new.

I currently ride in a newer synthetic wintec. It's greet for trail rides and super easy to clean, but I really prefer leather; if I was given the option to buy this saddle (it's not mine) I wouldn't. I have ridden in some older leather Wintecs, though, that I really liked. I have a 1972 Passier that I'm in LOVE with, but doesn't fit my horse. Currently in the process of trying to track someone down to adjust it, because apparently they've always made the gullets adjustable O.O Of course the only saddler the recommended that was anywhere near me is not longer in the business :/

I don't know much about brands of English saddles, but I think it would be a good strategy to read a lot of reviews, look at some in person in saddle shops, and maybe find some people that will let you try theirs out to see if you like how that brand fits. When I got my first western saddle, my mom took me to a few nearby saddle shops that let me sit in the saddles to see if they were the right size or not. We ended up buying a nameless saddle on eBay that turned out to be very comfortable and that the horse didn't mind. My current 2 saddles also came from eBay. One is nameless, kind of cheap, but pretty comfortable and the horses really like it. It's a 16 and my other is a 15 inch from California Saddlry. It fits the horses well and is shorter from front to back, but has ZERO padding in the seat, so its main use now is introducing young horses to saddling since it is smaller. I think you would be best off looking at things in person, feeling them, and seeing what other people have to say about them. Comfort is top priority for horse and rider. Looks come next. I'll buy something that feels nice for me and my partner before I buy something to just look flashy. That's what a colorful pad is for, though black or white is best in formal events. Just be sure that it fits you and the horse and that both of you enjoy using it. Sorry for the paragraph, but I can never say things simply. Whatever saddle you choose, I sincerely hope you find a budget friendly one that works for you and your partner.

Looks very uncomfortable! I’d probably get a saddle fitter to come out when you buy the horse because they usually have saddles available for purchase :) my first saddle (still have it today) was a lovely wintec gp 500 and it is fabulous,it’s so supportive and has a deep seat 🙂 I currently ride in a Wintec Isabell Dressage Saddle and I can not fault it :D if jumping dressage or GP is what you may be doing and if you want a quality saddle I’d definitely recommend a Wintec 😃

Pessoa and Bates saddles are the best. I currently have a used Pessoa and I bought it 3 years back looking slightly used, and I almost never clean my saddle (dont follow my bad habits!), and it still looks nearly new! Buy a used Pessoa is my suggestion for you.

I looked up the Eureka saddles, and they look very uncomfortable and they also have the useless shape that doesnt help at all, but is just there to replicate and horrible All-Purpose saddle. If made right, AP saddles are great, but I prefer Close-Contact (CC).

I've ridden in quite a few different brands of saddles. If you have a very large budget I'd recommend Voltaire. They are the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden in and are fully customizable.
But, I personally own a Cliff Barnsby and a M. Toulouse. They are incredible saddles that are high quality but are more inexpensive when bought used.
