English saddles- What one?

Im looking for a new English saddle.. Needs to be a 17.5 would prefer black but it really doesn't matter...
The one I have works pretty good but I rode in my friends saddle about a week ago... and discovered my saddle is pretty much as hard as a rock!.. no wonder why my bum was hurting alot So I thought I would try to look for another saddle... Would like to be under 230...
Any help would be awesome.. I just want something affordable but still of good quality... Thanks : )

Looking on ebay, or at a local tack store for saddles on consignment are your best bet.

What style? AP, Dressage, CC/Jump? What tree size? For your price range, you're going to have to go used to find a quality saddle. If you let me know what style and tree size, I can do some looking around for you.

If you show I would not suggest black. I would look online because you can find some great deals.

Most QHs take med-wide to wide trees. Medium/regular English trees are built for leaner horses, like lanky Thoroughbreds. They are similar to narrower Semi-QH bar western saddles, for Appendix type horses.
