My SO rides in a Tucker plantation saddle and can't say enough good things about it. It's another one of those good brands with a high re-sale value (if you can find one for sale).
I have a Tucker as well, though it's a Cheyenne (western style). Now I regret having bought a saddle with a horn, so if the opportunity comes up to trade for something of equal quality and value I would.
But. . .I do love that saddle and may just ride it until it's no longer ride-able, clean it up, and keep it as home decor. Like I said, I do
love that saddle and that particular one has some fond memories attached to it.
A couple of years ago I lucked out and found a "western-style endurance" saddle on eBay. Not even sure of the brand, but I call it my knock-off Tucker. It is basically a western saddle minus the horn and with a round skirt. The price was great, too ($250, including S&H).
Many tack shops, including the online/catalog shops, have "demo" saddles to send out so you can try before you buy. I considered one of the Australian Stock Saddle Co's saddles a few years ago - think it was called the Buckaroo, and it was small and I liked the look of it. Never got back around to buying one, though, and I am happy with the saddles I own now.
