    I know I am not going to find a high quality saddle in my price range, but I need a saddle that I will be able to saddle break my horse in, they get only a few years of riding, in, while I am making money, and looking for a better saddle.

    Is this one better:

    I am just not understanding your resistance to the "for now" saddle being of reasonable quality. Because your horse is young and because you are going to be starting her, you should want the best possible quality and fit in a saddle to protect her young back as you bring her into work. Believe me, I understand the draw of a new saddle - but when you have *X* budget to work with and can either have a brand new poor quality (possibly to the point of causing harm to your horse-or yourself if it fails while you are riding, which, with some of these saddles can happen) saddle or a good quality used saddle, you wouldn't be looking at the good quality used saddle.

    To me the leather on that one looks more the the cheap (almost compressed cardboard like texture) leather. That and they fact that they claim full QH bars fit 90% of the horses in ameerica sets up a huge red flag.

    Themapack, if I don't get a saddle, my only option will be to use a pony saddle, that does not have full QH bars, and does not fit any horse. I am choosing to buy a saddle, within my price range, that has a back cinch, so I can saddle break Breeze, and then ride her, using that saddle, while I am looking for a better one.

    I will not use the saddle, for anything but putting on her back, if it does not fit, and will sell it, if it does not fit her.

    Not all saddles are going to be the best, but just because they are not the best quality, does not mean they will not fit.

    I want to do anything BUT hurt my horse, so believe me, if the saddle does not fit, I will not use it on her.

    Why the heck are you so opposed to a USED saddle?? You can find good quality used saddles for under $200. They will be old, no doubt about that but much better suited for a horse.

    I don't care if I get a used saddle or not, but the used ones in my area are all over $500 and I cannot AFFORD it!!!

    Saddleonline has good customer service and decent reviews. Yes, the leather is from India but I would not put them in the same category as shady ebay sellers.

    If the saddleonline saddle fits you and your horse, I see no reason why you shouldn't go for it.

    Oh, and I personally prefer a black saddle on a black horse. My horse is a black and white paint and I use a black saddle with a grey saddle pad.

    Ok do you even know what size gullet you need and seat size? You are a kid but are looking at 17in seats. And it doesn't need to be local if you are buying on ebay.

    That is what I think, but everyone on here says it is crap. I don't need a high quality saddle right now, I need a comfortable one for me and my horse.
