Just trying to help, like others here. Mean this in a positive way have you looked here ? Western Saddles for sale with in Pedigree around USA :: HorseClicks
Briefly looking and the only barrel saddles I've ever owned were to flip from estates aucton sales etc , but briefly looking at for sale list I see a Tex Tan and a Crates for $595. You might look into also Dakotas, pre-owned Cactus's, etc.
Also to be fair I'am sure some saddles listed here might be on E-Bay.
Hope it helps be patient, sometimes great tack deals are just around the corner.
