What saddle blanket?

Hi I am looking around for a good western saddle blanket. I was wondering what brand I should get? Does anyone know of a brand that works well but doesnt cost too much? Thanks.

For showing or for just trail riding?

I just bought a Mustang saddle blanket that I really like. I paid $60 for it. It will be strictly for showing.

I was thinking about this one.

I got mine at a local tack store a couple of months ago and honestly don't remember what all colors they had. I was specifically looking for tan and teal (even though it looks more blue in that pic, it's actually teal), so I didn't pay much attention to what other colors they had, but I'm sure had red.

I haven't gotten my western saddle yet, but for at home riding/schooling, I plan on using a 1/2-3/4" wool pad topped with a cheap saddle blanket from Walmart ($10-15). Right now when we ride, I use my Aussie saddle, but plan on getting into WP as soon as I can get a western saddle.
