Which brands make synthetic western saddles?

And are some better than others?

I have a Toulouse english saddle already, but I want to get a synthetic western saddle that I can use if I want to give pony rides to kids, or if there's a chance of rain and I don't want my Toulouse to get wet, or if I want to ride in flannel-lined jeans in the winter instead of trying to put breeches over my long underwear...

The better rated are Abetta, Big Horn, Fabrton and Wintec. Circle Y's is rather pricey compared to the others.

I wouldn't go for Wintec myself: I had an accident when saddle (just couple years old) broke under me, my friend had similar accident as well. But yes, they make synthetic ones.

Abetta is a decent one, and Fabtron and Big Horn are on a better quality side.
