So. I'm looking into an aussie saddle, and I'm finally ready to buy. I realize neither ASSC or DownUnder are top of the line, but it's what I can afford. From what I've looked at, DownUnder is a better brand that ASSC. So, I took a wither tracing, sent an email, only to find that Clem's withers won't fit my picks! They sent me a list of the ones she would fit, and of those, the DownUnder wizzard poley and Master Campdraft are the ones I would consider. I don't care for them as much as my top picks.
This brings me to my question. ASSC has a few saddles I'd liked, the patrol Poley style being one of them (without horn. I like that it's a bit of a crossover style, I love the flat skirting on the back). Should I go for the higher quality saddle that I don't quite like as much, or the lesser quality that I do like the style of? I'm kind of thinking quality should take precedence, but I thought I'd get another opinion.
(Sorry, I would link to the saddles but that is a lot of work on my phone.)
