Ill vouch for the American saddlery saddles. I have a roper right now..it's 8lbs lighter than what it's advertised on their site, but it's a nice saddle.
While it still squeaks (probably my oil job, lol), it's held up to quite a bit and is still in sound and aesthetic shape. It's gone down with a horse in the trailer (twice), it's been dragged through mud, and I've caught the stirrups on many things..But I will never sell that saddle. Even if none of my current horses fit it (when I get my own), it will sit in my house until a horse that it does fit. I can ride in the saddle all day, everyday and still be able to walk like a normal person (at least that's what it feels like riding for 2 hours, 2 days in a row lol).
I can't say anything about the other models, but my roper has lovely leather and a comfy seat.
