I am trying one out next week! What are your thoughts? I would only be using it for lower level work right now (maybe up to training level, tops). Is it more of an AP or CC saddle?

This is a great saddle, I know a rider who used it up to the ** level!!

The Edelweiss is a CC saddle. It hasn't been on the market that long, so an "old" Edelweiss is probably not more than 10 years old. Unlike going to look at an "old" Seigfried which could be centuries old! (exaggeration...) It is a nice saddle and fine for eventing.

I rode in an Edelweiss through Prelim and did just fine. It was very comfortable, but did not have as many blocks as the newer jump saddles do now. Stubben is an excellent brand that holds up well for years, so if you like it and the price is right, go for it!
