American Saddlery - Barrel Saddle Help

Okay, so the only American Saddlery saddle I have had experience with was a really crappy one I got on ebay. It looked super flashy, light tan with LOUD orange seat and butterflies, but it was uncomfortable, eternally stiff, and I could barely move my legs.

So I want to know what you think of that barrel saddle. It's the right size for me, I jsut want to know if all of the American Saddlery barrel saddles are like the one I had or if that one if as nice as it looks.

I'm specifically buying it used so I don't have to break it in, lol.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

American Saddlery has at least 2 levels of saddles that I know of. The real cheapo yucky ones that sell for under $200? new. Then the better ones sell for $500.+? It's been a few years ago but my DIL bought a nice roping saddle by American Saddlery and it's nice. We aren't talking top of the line custom made etc but nice, not junk. I don't like buying a saddle unseen, tho I have done it. Just be sure you ask for a money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the quality.
