    I love my no-name Australian stock saddle that I got used at the local tack shop for $125. It's well-made (maybe not the softest leather on the flaps, but still decent quality) and looks really good. It also puts me in a great position, is super comfy (went on a three hour trail ride and had absolutely no soreness or pain the next day, other than my right ankle, but there's something wonky going on with my right leather, so yeah), and it fits Aires perfectly. I doubt I'll ever get rid of it, even if Aires outgrows it.

    It's like half Australia stock saddle and half western saddle. It has the knee rolls and no horn of a stock. Some have more the seat of a stock saddle where others have that more "flatter" western style seat (don't know proper names). The stirrups are generally more "under" the rider for a more english style position, but they are swinging fenders rather than english stirrup leathers. The halfbreed does not have the flocked panels like the stock saddles, they have that flat surface that western saddles have (again don't know proper word for western things but hopefully you get my drift). I don't really know a lot about these saddles but a lot of people I've met have them and love them.

    Here is a pic I found on google images:

    So basically it's what the Australian Stock Saddle Company calls the "Poley" and Down Under/Kimberly calls the "Crossover."
