Black will look worn.
White will look dirty.
Brown will look aged.

Whatever you want, you should get. If it was ME, I'd pick aged. But then, I'm older'n dirt so it fits. Sigh.

Also depends on your horse, and your costume. If your just starting out and practicing, I'd go with brown. If your more experienced and using in it shows, I'd pick the one that will look prettiest with both your costume and your horse's color.

Wait! I'll fix it....

Trick Saddle

You might want to try Hilason.

Considering your horses colors, I'd go with white. It might suck to clean but I think it would look the best

Horse, As much as your statement does not require any followup as I know that any argument will not change your opinion. However, I feel necessary to atleast respond to it once for the sake of others on this forum.

To start, this is the first time I have heard that Korea also makes saddles. This is news to me. I am sure you must have credible sources to this information.

As for the horn breaking off, I am sure you must have see this yourself. However, I think you are being a little unfair here. Just because, Toyota or GM started having issue in some of their specific models, they were not declared as bad manufacturers. Infact, Toyoto beat the world in 2010 in terms of sales. Hilason makes a lot of products and in such a broad variety you might see defects as they are human too. You cannot declare them as bad just because of one experience.

I think the least they have done is that they have made products at such prices that low income earners like myself can atleast think of owning. As far as their product quality, I think they are surely not THE best but amongst one of the best for their prices.

Hilason saddles are junk. They may be assembled in the USA, but their leather, trees, and parts all come from Asia. I wouldn't take one if it was given to me.

Bitfree, do you work for Hilason? Your posts are quite fishy.

I completely agree with everything you said.

I don't want to ignore the OP's question, I really like the White,, it's flashy, that is if you can keep it nice and clean.
