That western one really does look awful!
Mine is actually surprisingly nice. People around the barn that saw it commented on how nice the saddle looked, and how nice the leather felt - THEN I told them it was an eBay deal and their jaws dropped. Most people at my place ride in Ansurs - all their saddles are over $2k a piece, with many in the $4k price range! The stitching is tight and even, the leather is an even color and it doesn't rub off. I will eventually get a Barefoot when I have some more cash.
I would really love to be able to have a collection of pretty saddle pads, but I'd rather get whats better for the horsie, even if it's kind of on the ugly side.
