The start of the Western saddle hunt!

Hi all!
I recently bought an English saddle for my gelding, and now I'm looking for a new western one for my mare! My budget is pretty low, but my mom said she would help help me out with paying for it. So all in all, the maximum I can spend, shipping and taxes included is $1000.
My mom is refusing to let me buy used (not too sure why, but her house, her rules!), so I'm basically wondering what brands are decent quality for the price? Is there any?
P.s I like my saddles very... Uh, bedazzled I'd prefer something with color and nice tooling.. Perhaps Im dreaming too far here?!
Thanks guys!

His feet are as swift as rolling thunder, as he carries me away from all my fears, and when the world threatens to throw asunder, his mane is there to wipe away my tears <3

go to the corrientesaddleco website....many of us on here use them, I use them for startng colts, roping, and my daughter uses one for a drill team. You can get one "decked out" for under $800 ... that's with full tooling and a stingray seat of your choosing.

I second Corriente. My saddle was made by them about 3 years ago and, while it's very basic and utilitarian, it's really good quality for the price. I start all my colts in it, it's been rode a few million miles on dozens of different horses, been used to rope and drag some pretty dang heavy cattle, and it's still like new (other than some usual wear/tear).

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
