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?
