Definitely look at used saddles. You can get great quality for a fraction of what it would cost new. I got a like new dressage saddle for $250...later found out it's worth over $1500 new! It works perfectly for both schooling and trail/endurance riding.

this is my first post here, been lurking a while tho. this is exactly the info I need as well--what saddle to look for...

hello first of all. I am a 45yo woman, been riding my whole life. western. just recently realized my roping saddle just is too heavy, too bulky for the riding I want to do, which is lots of miles, both flat and hilly. currently ride a stout qh gelding 'copper', 16.1 and 1400lb. he's got a good shape, sweet nature and choppy gaits.

I can go up to maybe $1000 for my new saddle, but that's pushing it. so far i've seen a sharon saare and a synergist online, that seem good for me n copper. is either one better? and how about a cashel, which is a look-alike of clinton andersons' axis treed saddle. anybody have info for me on those???

i am sorry if I am asking the same ol questions, but i reeeaaaally can't afford to mess up with that much cash, and I reeeaaallly want a better saddle for long riding!! and need help!

PS....I do not want a horn, have only rode western so am scared to buy something too english, and not real interested in synthetic.

My endurance is nylon and cordura which places it at about 19-20 lbs. It is western styled without the horn. Bo't it for my TWH and altho it's considered full qh bars, he's too wide with his low withers and short flattish back.
