Help!! Barrel Saddle!

I am wanting a new barrel saddle. I see a nash barrel saddle i want. Are they good saddles? Do they last? Are the fenders made out of real leather or fake leather?

Nash Barrel Saddle us a Polyride Tree, which is a cheap knockoff version of a Ralide Tree.

When New they sell for about 650.00 to 700.00, are they worth that? Not with my hard earned money.

They are junk. You are best to shop for a used quality saddle. Mine are all Martha Josey saddles, but there all others of the same quality. Have your trainer do the shopping, that way you buy what will work the first time.

When I was looking for a new saddle, I looked at some pretty expensive ones. even expensive used circle Y. I ended up with a circle M, Valley Head. Never heard of it? That is okay with me, because it was an american made saddle, made one at a time, and made with real leather. I got is used for $400. I only knew about the brand even because my trainer had one that had come free with a horse. There are several other companies out there like that. I love my saddle. You can also get a used Dakota, alamo, etc solid mid range saddle used, often times at the end of the season when people get new ones (trophy).
