where to find good western saddles

I need to buy a western saddle for my qh because i've been riding him bareback ever since I started riding him, and I think it's time for a change. :P
I'm willing to spend a few extra bucks because I don't intend on buying anymore horses (right now) that I need to buy tack for. So I can splurge. And because I want to buy something that will last and I will enjoy using.
This is the type of saddle I looking for:


But instead of a suede seat I would like a leather covered one.
I really just want one with tooling and that has a dark oil color. I don't plan on showing with this horse, and if I do it will just be 4-h or fun shows. I've been on tons of sites, looked on ebay, and been to a few tack shops, but I can't seem to find exactly what i'm looking for. Anyone know some good websites or something? :)

What about a local auction? If you find what you want that's lighter colored you can always stain it darker.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I been to one lots of times in shipshawana (sp?)
It's a town where there's a big horse and tack sale every friday
It's the only one around, and i've bought saddles there before
And they're just not very good quality
But I just might look up other auctions near here
Thanks for the idea :) lol

You bet! We have a local friday night auction too...usually its full of knock off cheap saddles but every once and a while someone will bring a goodie. Just have to keep your eyes peeled!
