    Post any suggestions or links for western saddle?

    Hi yall, im a young girl looking to start barrel racing with my horse. I have been wanting to barrel race for a long time and im finally getting my first western saddle! Ok so the saddle has to be western and has to be horse size not pony lol Ok so must be under 160$. If you are selling or if you have a link please post below.
    Thank you guys soo much,

    Sorry to say, but you will not get any kind of useable saddle for that price, let alone one that fits both you and your horse.

    I think it is a very slim chance you will find the one you are looking for at that price. Try looking at your local classifieds (maybe kijiji or Craigslist) because I doubt you will be able to buy one brand new or pay for the saddle & shipping from someone on here.

    Try saving up as much money as possible for a month (i seem to make a lot of money babysitting because I get so many offers but you could try different tasks like yard work for your neighbors or making a deal with your parents.

    Hope I helped!

    Sorry, but $160 will generally get you either a heavily used, barely funtional saddle or a poor quality one that will not last you long. I suggest trying the things mentioned above or saving up even longer.

    Actually, I did find this: great start! It comes with the bridle, reins, saddle pad & saddle! It even comes in pink, blue, brown or black!

    It was the closest I could find to $160 but it does come with more things than just a saddle!

    Quite frankly, that saddle package is a complete piece of crap.

    A friend of mine bought it and it was misshapen, falling apart, and felt like cardboard. The saddle especially was so bad that there's no way it would've sat on a horse's back correctly.

    The OP really is better off saving for a bit longer to buy a good quality, name brand saddle second-hand somewhere. It'll save a hell of a lot of money in the long run - a higher quality saddle will fit better so it won't cause costly back issues, and it will last longer which means she won't have to replace it as quickly.
