    The first one is condura, which, as I stated before, is synthetic.

    And what about the second? That is the one I am really interested in. I know it comes with tack, has full QH bars and is leather, and in my price range.

    This is the sort of thing I would be checking

    Reinsman Work Saddle 17 inch Seat | eBay

    Hubba Bubba I wonder what the reserve is

    Hereford Roping Saddle 16" | eBay

    Maybe

    OK, I started out like you looking for sets, but believe me happiness is in an older nicer saddle.

    I agree with golden horse.

    My lease owner has an over one hundred year old saddle. I got to ride in it, and it is the most comfy saddle in the world!! And beautiful, too. Has a few nicks and slight dings... But it looks amazing. Only had to be retooled and fixed up once as far as I know.

    Lots of good advice here! Look for something brand name! You want the seller to be proud of it. You want as many detailed, close up pictures of all the parts, rigging, and fleece as you can get your hands on. Don't be afraid to ask for more pictures, ask how much it weighs. Ask for photos of it on and off of a horse.

    Used saddles are the way to go for a first time buyer.

    Thanks.

    Is the quality on this one bad? I really like it and I hope to buy it if not bad quility, I don't care about looks really, but how it feels, and fits my horse. I admit I want a saddle that won't be hiddious in shows, but looks are not the most important to me.

    I already posted this link, but I will post again.

    Any new "total package" saddle that you find on Ebay for that sort of price is not going to be a quality saddle, period. They are no-name, made in India saddles. You really need to consider adjusting to looking at used saddles that will give you more quality for a lower price.

    Do you have any tack shops in your general area that do used/consignment tack sales? Have you inquired at the local pony clubs, etc (here I would suggest 4-H, not sure if there is a similar group in Canada??) - many of groups here have tack swaps a couple times a year where they sell tack via "tables" (similar to a yard or tag sale, but for tack) or auction as a fundraiser for that group.

    I agree with themacpack. You aren't going to find a quality new saddle for that price.
