Best bet new are the saddles at DownUnder. Send a wither tracing, and they can recommend which models would fit or not, and then adjust the saddle. They are the best cross between quality and price.
I use their Master Campdraft. It feels like my Bates AP saddle to my butt, but is a lot more secure if the horse hits the fan...
Also, be very wary of used saddles. If you know the brand, OK - but there are a lot of cheap knock-offs out there.
