I'll post the big surprise next friday , but I need to find a nice Western saddle. Must be FQHB, 16", and preferably under $500. The saddle is for a finished reiner so would love to find a reining saddle, but have found a lot of roping saddles that look nice enough. These are ones I've found so far; I would like some input from the experts as it's been a long time since I've gone Western saddle shopping.
TexTan roping saddle, and English saddle for sale
LOVE this one, but I know very little about TexTans.
16" Reining / Reiner Saddle Pish Saddlery | eBay
My favorite of them all, but I'm not sure if my dad will go for it for the price.
16" Tex Tan Western Saddle
Another TexTan. I love the look of it, but have no idea if the brand is quality.
TexTan 16" Western Saddle
TexTan again, but looks cheaper than the others.
No idea of brand, but looks to be decent
Amish saddle, no idea of quality
Beautifully tooled vintage Western Saddle
Vintage saddle. Pretty, but no brand, and would like to see the underside if the fleece is worn out
I've heard Wades are good saddles.
Thanks so much!
