Here in the states an english saddle can be from free, if you have a friend who gives you one, to $6-7000 I think that's around 4,000 british pounds

Saddles have a huge range on how much they cost. I got mine for 150 dollars practically new, but there are saddles worth 6-7000 like Vidaloco said. It just depends if you want a fancy show saddle with an expensive brand name or a cheaper saddle that may be made poorly. I went with the cheap saddle :).

CWD can make you a saddle for over $10,000

Generally a good quality basic saddle will run you anywhere from $1500-$2500. Paying anything more than that is absurd in my opinion.

You can get saddles for as low as $200 to up in the $10,000's, particularly some of the higher end customs. I would discourage buying a new saddle that costs less than 1k unless budget is limiting. I tend to buy saddles between the 2.5-5k range.

It really depends what kind of saddle you want to buy. They are some great saddle packages that include all the basic tack you need to start riding. It also depends if you are going to go with leather or synthetic, new or used. There is a saddle for pretty much any budget.

I don't recall the name of my saddle, but my parents got it brand new on ebay for $100. It came with everything, including girth, bridle, bit and pad.

My saddle is about $4000 new and worth every penny. As are most Antares, Butets, Devoucouxs, etc. There are is a noticable comfort and quality difference between these and most $2500 saddles. I don't believe most of the general public needs a higher end saddle, but anyone who spends a lot of time in the saddle ought to get the best quality their budget can afford.

I have to somewhat disagree with it. I tried several Butet and Antares (new and used), and they felt horrible under my butt. I'd never go with one. I'm SURE there are other high end saddles, which will feel super comfortable for me, I just didn't try (the reason I tried those brands was because number of people in barn I take lessons in own them). But what I'm trying to say is the price doesn't mean the comfort necessarily.
