Best Used English Saddle Websites?

I am going to be in the market soon for a proper fitting English saddle (used or new). I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with any websites? I would prefer to buy a used one to save some $$$ but I will also look at new, if it's reasonable (not anything like a custom $4000 saddle).
Also, what brands are the best? I don't want anything that isn't going to last, I already have a cheapo (an old HDR saddle that my friend gave to me).
And I have a paint with a QH build, if that makes a difference, I don't know much about how English saddles are supposed to fit.

I live in south Texas so there are no proper stores (for English saddles) within at least 100 miles!

For learning about how an English saddle should fit, start here:

For the rest of your questions, the thread just below yours is pretty much asking the same thing:

My saddle fitter recommended this site to me:
Fine Used Saddles | Top Quality French, German, & English Saddle Sales & Consignment | HOME

But I ended up finding my saddle here:

This website has some pretty good deals on higher end used saddles
UsedSaddles.com's *NEW* Website

If you want to go with new, SmartPak has a great test ride program for a majority of their saddles.
