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.

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
