Saddle Hunting! (Western) help!

Yes, I'm still hunting for a saddle. I'm having absolutely no luck. At all. So frustrating!!
I have some strict criteria that I'm not budging from: 13"-14.5", Semi-QHB, Decent brand, a slightly deep seat, pretty enough to show in, but tough enough for normal use, NOT vintage, Used, and around $400.
I know, my price point is making everything harder, but it is what it is. I'm going into high school, and can't afford much more (I already begged for a car and it'd look bad if I begged for $$ for a saddle, too. )
Here's what I've come up with...
Circle Y Western Saddle All Around Size 14 with rigging | eBay
14 INCH WESTERN SADDLE MADE BUFORD /With Silver SHOW OR TRAIL SADDLE | eBay liking this, but it's ending really soon.
What do you think of them? Which one would you go for?

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it's the voice at the end of the day that says "I'll try again tomorrow"...

I like the second or fourth one.
While the second one is a 15", It'd be a bit more marketable than a 13.5 or 14 when or if you need to resale. It also has just enough flash to show in, but not too much for daily use.
I like the fourth, but it does seem more vintage than the rest.

Life's shining moments, however big or small, will always out weigh our darkest hour.

I like the third and fourth.

The third one would seems like it would look nice on a horse that is built a little downhill and would work for barrel racing. The fourth seems more vintage show saddle.
