YOu are better off buying a good make used. Study eBay a bit. Look at the completed listings to see what sells and what doesn't. THen-when you find the right deal you will be a little more knowledgable. If you get a new one and have to resell it you will lose more than if you buy used and have to.

I have a wintec all purpose, and I love it. It is a great starter saddle. Maybe you could borrow some of your instructors to try out?

... Yea I will probably have to do that. I am just excited and don't want to wait haha but you guys are right I should really slow down and take my time on this.

Yep. Often times, the "cheap" ones are just that – cheap. Kincade is junk, Stübben is junk... etc. :)

What is your price range, what size do you need, and what kind of tree do you need for your horse?

The reason that I personally love my wintec, is because of its deep seat and adjustable knee rolls. I ride on the trail lots, and they help me feel more secure! Mine has the flock panels, which you can adjust to fit your horse and change as your horse matures. They also have a cair system, but my instructor told me that flock would be just fine for what I'm doing.

I would really just try some out!! I also looooove collegiate brand saddles, but could buy the wintec new for less than the cost of a collegiate in my area.

My mustang and QH are pretty medium ..I don't know exactly off hand. The QH might by wide but she's still growing. I am not sure about seat size I hear they are different in english then for western?

While it's not a personal favorite, I wouldn't consider Stubben as being in the same category as a Kincade. It is a quality brand in its own right.

Equiniphile beat me to it. I love Stubbens.

Stay away from the starter packages. They are junk.

If you can't find a good used and don't want to spend a lot, look at synthetics like Wintecs and Thorowgoods. I have a Wintec Jump and love it, and I've heard lots of good things about Thorowgood.
