Usually you have to ask a leather craftsmen make it for you, one that specializes in trick saddles (they are few and far between). Occasionally you can find them used...shop circus web sites or sometimes rodeo....but stay AWAY from ebay. You need a saddle that has a solid tree, tall horn(usually steel) and low seat. Make sure you check all the leathers....especially the stirrups and cinch....make sure it has a breast collar and back cinch...check it loyally every time you plan to ride it. Quick story: I worked with a girl on a show who was doing a suicide drag...the saddle was used and checked every day...yes we used it every day....in the middle of her trick the cinch broke and she was trampled. They had to reconstruct her face and eventually she could ride again....but it is not something that you want to happen to you. Best of luck!!

Oh bummer. I know Heath Harries is associated with a company that makes them, but that's in Australia so not much use :]

well thanks anyways... I am also asking around with different professional trick riders. Like said above, I don't need to get hurt just cause I don't have good equipment.

Here is the web site for Tommy and Karen Turvey Equine Extremist they are in Illinois....they maybe able to tell you who they use to make their saddles. They may even know some Canadian Craftsmen. They used to have a school for training riders also.
