In addition to the KO saddles, I would like to mention Corriente too. They are not as expensive as KO, but they aren't quite as customizable either. You can still get the look you want. I've got a custom ranch saddle from them that cost me less than $700, and their barrel saddles are cheaper than that. They may not be as flashy as other brands, but they are sturdy, functional, and well made. A very nice working quality saddle.
