    Welcome to the forum - both of you!

    We have number of members from Australia here so I'm sure you will get the answer to your questions and the reason for those answers. In the US, some of the questions I would have asked you is what type of riding are you doing, English or Western and what discipline (jumping, dressage, cutting, trail riding, etc)?

    It's important to know what type of saddle you are considering and to what purpose.

    Oh I ment english money, not australian.. but the 'normal' type is probabyly a GP (general purpose)
    And now you think about it, I would prob actually pay alot more than that, maybe 500? For leather...
    I really need to get a new sadle, the one iv got at the minute is messin up her back.

    Aushorse, I believe the typical saddle in Australia is the stock saddle and a good saddle to start with to help you build some confidence. If you Google Western saddle and English saddle, as well as Australian saddle, you will see the differences.

    Polo, if your saddle is hurting your horse's back I would seriously consider stopping until the problem is fixed. You run the risk of causing damage to your horse and creating behavioral problems.
