Hi! I'm in search of a new c/c saddle. I know about the Crosby/Pessoas (don't like Stubbens/Toulouses) of the world but I'm looking for something "one step up" so to speak. I'm not sure exactly what brands to be looking at though... Prestige comes to mind but that's all I got. I am looking to spend up to maybe $1500. I DO NOT want a new saddle. I ride in jeans so no calfskin -Butet/Antares etc (out of my budget anyway). I need a slightly deeper seat because although I do Hunters/Jumpers/Eq I also occasionally bum around a xc course. I like the look of the Bates' Caprilli but I'm reluctant because of the smooth leather and air panels. I'd like something with knee blocks too. Anyone have suggestions????

And if anyone happens to have something available, I'm looking for a 17.5-18" with a med tree.

Thank you!!!
