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

    I'm sorry, but I wholeheartedly disagree with this.

    Breezey, what you are not taking into consideration is the DANGER involved in using a low quality saddle. I have seen the TREE break on a saddleonline saddle while my friend was simply trail riding. What makes you think a saddle like that will hold up to a green horse? What if the rigging pulls out while you're riding?

    It just isn't worth it.

    I've bought a saddle from saddlesonline.com and when it came in the mail I wanted to cry... such poor quality and I spent $400 on it. The leather was like cardboard and is not even dyed-it's painted! There was glue showing at the seams in places and the stitching was crooked. I even felt bad when I was reselling it because I knew it was crap but I needed to get my money back so that I could by another one..I ended up with a used Dakota. Paid $325 on ebay and it's amazing! Please do NOT buy from saddlesonline!

    I gave a link to a sk tack swap that has 1k+ members. That usually includes tack swap consignments, private sellers, and general tack shops.

    If you can't find a good, well fitting saddle, in your price range, near you, then I don't know where in the world you won't.

    I've seen stubbens for less than a grand in great shape. There is a circle y nbha for four hundred. There are two crates reigners for one under a thousand, and another at a thousand.

    These are great prices for great saddles. Buying new would mean costing you through the ear.

I just recently found an older Circle Y for $300 and it is comfortable and feels great, plus it was already broken in so I didn't have to deal with that horrible breaking in phase

    From my experience circle y's come broken in, .... I get your point tho.

    And hell... I found my very wonderful lease on my local tack swap page, whose owner is wonderful.

    I even (almost) got me a nice paragon hybrid trail saddle for 250. But darn funds killed me. And I had to let it go. Hell, I could have almost had a free freisian lease if I didn't have Titan already!

    I joined that page and found only 14" saddles, which I cannot use, I am hoping a 17" will come on there, so I am continuing to look.

    On ebay, every saddle I put the link up to, you say is junk. I am looking for used ones right now, but can't seem to find any good ones. I will continue to look and put up posts with links.
