I've been doing a little research, and the only saddles I can find in my price range that seem to be good quality are the Dakota brand saddles.
Are they really good quality saddles? My price range is below $1000, preferable not any higher than $800... Dakota offers some nice looking saddles for anywhere between $400 and $1000... but are they really great?
Also, does anyone know much about the Circle M brand? I have a Circle M saddle that is my mares, and I love it to death and it was very inexpensive (only $375), but I honestly don't know how good a brand it is, and I'd like to hear from actual other people who have used Circle M, what yall thought. I think Circle M saddles are mad by Valley Head Saddlery or something like that... I'm asking because I would like to go with another Circle M saddle if they are good quality saddles.
