Have you considered Thornhill's Vienna II? Retail $995, but I've seen used much cheaper. HDR has a couple of models, too.

A brand I'm not familiar with, but I had a friend who worked with this place for trying to find a saddle that fit. She said they were very helpful.

Meyerstone Dressage Saddles

For used, I've always thought that UsedSaddles.com, Pelham, and Rick's Heritage had a decent selection in that price range.

I have a couple, but most of them carry these brands only:

Stubben
M. Toulouse
Bates
Wintec

Wintec's are out because I don't want another synthetic, since I own one now. I do like M. Toulouse and their prices are right, but I was just wondering aloud on here what others thought, to see if there might be a trend in one saddle name repeating...so far there's not haha!!

LOL yeah ;) I actually almost ended up with a new Stubben for $700!!! It was the Laurus, and they said it just wasn't selling because it was a 16", but I normally get 16.5" and I fit the seat...but my poor little knees were at like the end of the flaps LOL! Then I figured out it's a YOUTH saddle hehe! I thought I had a deal!

Stubbens are very nice. =]

I picked up a Kieffer saddle in excellent condition for $500. She "didn't know" the model (It was printed clearly on the flap.... o.O ), and since it's a higher-end model, apparently, I lucked out. =] I rode in a few Kieffer Wein saddles, and I liked those, too. The older Kieffers are the ones that I prefer to the newer ones. They hold up wonderfully and mine is SUPER comfy. AND you can find a bunch used online! =] If you're looking for new, though, they're well over $1,000.

I also liked the Karl Niedersuss saddles, those go for about $600-$800 used in nice condition, too.
