I've been looking for anything used, and they just don't exist in my area. The "used" saddles are saddles that people bought in their western size and are trying to sell because they're too small for them.
I've been looking for anything in a 17" in my area, and just keep coming up with these cheapo's and brand new saddles that are like Stubben's and such. If I could find a good saddle in my price range, I'd buy it... but they don't exist here. Or are VERY rare.
