Buying a new saddle

I'm looking to buy a new (western) saddle soon. I currently have a Circle Y that I love but it's too narorw and rubs my horse so I don't use it anymore. Does anyone know of anywhere to buy nice, but not too expensive, all purpose type saddle? Or of someone who makes custom saddles specifically for one person?

Hi :)
Could you post a photo of the circle y you have now that you love?
and what breed of horse do you have? Is he/she fairly wide ?
The best thing would be to find a saddle that is good quality and well made that's still in your price range and that fits both you and your horse.
Are their a lot of western saddle makers where you are? Or do you have friends that ride in western saddles that they would recommend?

Yeah, I was trying to post this pic yesterday but my computer was messing up so here it is. (This isn't the horse that I'm talking about it not fitting by the way) My horse is a QH and he is quite wide.

Excuse the dirtiness of the saddle... but anyway I like the color, tooling, and most of all the way this saddle fits me. I think the other saddle I use pushes me too far back. I'm going to try to take pictures of that saddle and me riding in it soon.
