I did a big long post and the computer ate it so here is the condensed version.
Long story short, I bought a Bighorn for my first horse and 18 years later I still keep that saddle as a back-up. Excellent quality! I thought all synthetics were like that. Boy was I in for a shock when I started seeing other synthetic saddles around. All junk!
Now I try to keep myself in the realm of better made saddles, but as far as synthetics go, Bighorns are the best I have seen. I didn't even know synthetic saddles were considered junk until I started seeing other brands. My saddle was a more expensive one even for a Bighorn though. It cost around $550 twelve years ago, so it never was a "cheap" cheap saddle.
