I plan on showing western this year and I'm looking for a used western show saddle. Unfortunately I know a lot more about english saddles than western. The only decent brands of western saddle I know are Tex Tan and Billy Cook. Someone I know has a King Series, but I think the seat is way to hard. I had to rig my gel pad to it to ride in it, lol. I'm looking at buying from Ebay or ideally the local 4h tack sale this spring. I don't want to spend more than $800.
Also, I don't know what size to get. I ride in a 17.5 inch english saddle if that helps.
