Wait to get a saddle until (and if) you buy a horse of your own. Lesson programs should have their own saddles that properly fit the horse you would be using it on. Also, in most cases when leasing, saddles (and all tack) should be available from the horse's owner.
When you buy a saddle, it needs to fit both the horse and the rider, so without having a horse you will be riding all the time, getting your own saddle is a waste of money. Save the money for more lessons, leasing (if you choose to), shows, etc.
