Custom Saddlemaker Recommendations

I have been looking for a custom saddle. My price range goes anywhere between $2000-$3000. I ride on a ranch and rope a little, so I want something tough and sturdy. I am most interested in wades, but might consider a post horn association. I was hoping to have the saddle built 1/4 floral tooling and flat plate rigging for my price range.

Do you know of any custom saddle makers who build a good quality saddle for what I want to spend?

I would HIGHLY reccomend "About the Horse" saddles, otherwise known as "Black Rhino." I have met the owner/saddlemaker, attended informational clinics, and used this brand personally. The saddles are not only 100% custom to your taste in looks, but they are 100% custom to your horse(s). They are absolutely top quality saddles that will last for years and years of abuse and weather without appearant damage. They make a variety of western saddle types, it's completely up to you.

The best part is that they take measurements of your horse and construct the saddle to fit comfortably, not interfere in movement (special custom trees and saddle construction), etc. If you want any specific details please feel free to ask, I absolutely love them and wouldn't go anywhere else for a custom saddle!
