There is not a huge western riding contingency in my neck of the woods. It does not limit my ability to know that good tack of either type costs money.
A saddle you can buy that cheaply is not a good saddle no matter English or Western.
It limits mine. I had no idea that good quality Western tack cost a lot. Every where around here Western tack is inexpensive. I don't know the different between a good quality Western saddle and not so good quality. To me they're all the same quality.
