I really like both saddles I currently have, unfortunately neither fit my new horse so am selling them. The Big horn is extremely comfortable I really wish it would have fit because I sure would have been able to sit for hours and hours in it lol. I honestly was surprised at how nice the leather was on it when I got it, I hadn't really ever considered a big horn to be a higher end saddle but they definitely used quality leather on it. The Circle y is also pretty comfortable and I like the softee leather. I'd buy another of those two brands with a semi qh tree if I can find one. I have had a reinsman as well, also a nice saddle. I like tex tans, but only the older saddles, my only complaint on them is that they tend to be on the heavier side. All of those saddles you should be able to pick up used for under $800 if you look around.
