They're like $6,000 new(: And you can find them used on eBay for about $3,000 to $5,500. :)

Barnsby Xtreem but it's a lot more than $600.

I've also got a GFS Pro event and loved that till I got the Barnsby. That's more than $600 too though.

Can you part ex yours against something better and increase what you have to spend.

If you buy something cheap or synthetic, you'll only end up disappointed and having to buy something else later as you progress.

YIKES! There is nooo way i'm buying synthetic. I'm looking for a nice new Eventing Pony, so maybe I will wait until I buy one and then fit it to it. :)

I'm a cowgirl. I break horses, I wear jeans and boots and I play in the mud. (:

i also love county saddles [i have one ordered !] but they are EXPENSIVE. the only reason i can afford one is that i hoard my money like crazy [besides board/vet/farrier bills lol] and i sold a horse in october.

The NEW Thorowgood T8 range of saddles that combinesreal leather and synthetic materials

Have you looked at Thorowgoods? The high wither ones fit TBs like a glove. They are wool flocked, adjustable knee rolls, deep seat and semi-leather. I think the seat and flaps are leather and the rest is faux. I have the synthetic T4 version and the balance is great in that thing. It really frees up my horse's back and shoulders too. There's a store in Vermont that sell them in the states for about $900.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
