Know that I know the approx size for a saddle that fits Sonny I'm going to go to a tack shop and look at new and used saddles. The one play I'm going to stop at is Cheshire Horse and wanted to get everyone's opinions on the brands that they sell (new...they don't have a consignment page).
Tucker: out of my price range though unless they have consignment ones
Abetta: I had one, nice saddle, but not sure if I want to get another one
Reinsman: never heard of the brand...probably costly though
Big Horn: Tried one of the BOs big horn western leathers and it was painful!!!!!!!
Wintec: I love their english saddles never tried their western
Circle-Y: Rode in them....love them
What's your opinion on these saddles? What one would you get if you were on a tight budget? Which would be the better made? What's your opinions on the Wintec western?
