Well, since pet poll is not working, I'll post here.
Saddles are usually chestnut or dark brown or black, but a few like mine have other colors. So far I have seen black and grey and chestnut and red. Some are white too. I was just wondering your favorite color of english saddle and if you have seen any more unusual colors. Here are what I could find.
1. chestnut:
2. dark brown:
3. dark and light:
4. black and red:
5. black and chestnut:
6. Black and grey: (the one in the pic is mine!)
7. Black:
8. Other, please post. These were all the colors I could find.

I like the dark brown.......but that is just my personal choice becuase it looks good on a palomino

#2 is the kind of saddle I have. I love it. It's like dressage saddle meets jumping saddle!

My saddle was a great $100 ebay find, although I'm still trying to get it sft, it's a bit stiff. I can't find a brand name anywhere, I wanted to know where to buy colored saddles for the future.

I LOVE Aussie saddles. I always prefered Western to English, because with English I feel like I'm going to slid off, but a friend I'd ride with had an Aussie Saddle and wow! Is it ever comfortable. :D

Well, my tack is more of a Havana brown, but it sort of looks like chestnut! :)

I'm pretty sure it would be cheaper to go with the new bridle, would it not? Unless you would want to spend about $300 on a new one.

All depends. Somtimes a decent bridle can cost as much as a cheap saddle. I got my saddle for $1800. It's a rich mahogany with silver tooling & tooling all over. I have my name engraved on it as well as a young girl found one on e-bay excatly like it & I didnt want there to be a mix up between the clubs. My bridle matches my saddle but I think I need a new saddle pad. Mine is black but kinda stands out under the saddle. Dont know why.

I like the black saddle and the dark brown saddle, the black & grey one is pretty nice also.

I'm not to crazy about English, it is ok, but I like Western alot better. I use to ride English some and I always felt so weird riding.

yeah, my saddle was $100 and my bridle was $40 on tack-wholesale.com, but normally would be about twice as much. I MUCH prefer english over western, I feel more confident and secure (go figure) in an english saddle.

I really don't like English saddles but I'd have to say black and red looks good.
