    No from me too.

    You can't get second-hand at all? If that's your price-limit and your only option is to buy new, you unlikely to be looking at any good saddles.

    I always thought Redi-Ride kind of sounds like Cheez-Whiz... I'm pretty sure it's in the same quality-bracket.

    Barf NO! Surely you can find a wintec or other brand of used saddle out there. Just about any saddle you can find new under $500, is CRAP, and very likely to hurt your horse.

    You can find great used saddles really really cheap if you look. You have to look closely and BE PICKY. (:

    Trying on used saddles shouldn't be a problem as long as you stick to sellers who will let you try the saddle on your horse. Trying/fitting a used saddle should be no different than a new one, you just have to check the tree, billets, panels, etc. Please don't buy a cheap, new saddle. Your horse may not forgive you and there's a good chance you'll both be miserable.
