I have a Toulouse Aachen...and I LOVE it. The Toulouse dressage saddles have a deep seat. I removed the blocks as I have short legs. It's nice that they have the removeable blocks. I was able to find my saddle - used (about 4 times) for $700.

The Genesis system is new for them...and the dressage saddles aren't going to be at my local tack shop until January/February.

As for fit - I have a 16 year old Trakehner gelding - 16.1 hh and I have the medium width for him and it fits beautifully. He has lost some weight with the change in weather and has the shark fin wither you speak of. I use an Equi-Prix dressage saddle pad along with a wither relief pad with sheepskin. It works beautifully. When he gains weight back...I will remove the wither relief pad.

Happy Saddle Shopping:)

Does anyone know where they are made? I typically do not like Argentinian leather..So I hope it isn't from there. The price makes it attractive. I may just have to look anyway.
There is a tack shop near me that will do trade ins so if Ic ould trade mine in and not have to wait to sell it that would be great.

I have an older (maybe 3-5 years old) Aachen (16.5 M) in beautiful condition (no scratches, cracks, intact billets, etc) that I picked up for around $450 earlier this year. My mare has well defined withers and WIDE shoulders and with some minor reflocking it is fitting her very nicely.
Her saddle has a lot of wither clearance and I imagine it would work well with some shark-fin withers if the horse was broad through the shoulder. The way my saddle is cut I think it would sit lower on a slab-sided horse but since I have an older model that might not be applicable for you.
Overall I have been thrilled with the quality of the leather and workmanship. Good luck!
