WOW! AWESOME deals on some NICE western saddles.

440 Saddlery - Full Line Tack & Saddle

These saddles are all priced around 50% off or more! These are VERY nice saddles... A friend of mine has one and it's high quality leather/workmanship and fits a lot of horses. If anyone is interested, I'd call and see if maybe you can work out a better deal if you buy two!

I wish I needed a western saddle, I would so snatch one up...

This one is my favorite!

And it's only $435!!!! Normally over $1,200....

Not bad for an Import from India/Pakistan, they are making them better and better lately.

Do you know they are imported? For certain? My friend has their barrel saddle and it looks a lot better than most imported saddles I have seen. It's only slightly lower in quality than my Circle Y.

I am Pretty Sure, knowing wholesale costs of Saddles very well. There are some telltale signs, like the slight wave in the leather on the back of the skirts and the thickness of the leather, but mainly the cost. I find it hard to believe, someone sells a saddle, even in a going out of business sale for a lot less than US manufacturing costs.
I was referring to the Wade Style Saddle Pictured and the other Wade and Ranch Saddles on the website, they Engravings alone are worth 200-250 dollars if done in the US

Well, they could be like some bigger names out there and "assembled" in Mexico ;).

They would make a great starter saddle, or a guest saddle.

Foal try this place if you want a starter saddle their prices are really good my friend bought one and it's very pretty. I don't know about the quality but I thought about getting one 4 myself just to ride around the house with. Check it out....

Do NOT buy one of those cheap starter sets. You're better off getting a mid-grade new saddle (like a Dakota, Simco, American Saddlery, etc.) or an older used good saddle. Those really cheap Asian imports are built on fiberglass trees with really low quality leather. They are not worth buying, for any price.

I wouldn't touch ANY of the saddles on that web site, sorry. Pretty does not equal quality.

The saddles in my original post would be consider mid-grade saddles.

I agree Luvs2Ride,

I feel faint when I see and here about these Imports, I have seen too many problems, Horses Sore, Broken Trees, pulled out Screws and other thing with these Saddles, I was talked into three different makers of Import Saddles One Time and Regretted it.

Do not get me wrong not all Import Western Saddles are bad, but everyone knows the old saying "You Get What You Pay For".

Most of the less than $300.00 Saddles you find are made from Water Buffalo besides the Hollow Trees, Etc, Generally the Leather does not smell too good either.
