Favorite saddle brands?

Hey everyone,

I'm in the market for a new (used) western saddle. What are your favorite brands? My budget is $800 so I am buying used in hopes of finding a great quality saddle for cheaper than retail value. I like the traditional look and it's just for casual riding, mainly trails with some gymkhana.

Thanks in advance for your imput :)

I love our tex tan. They are real comfy and the one we have really holds in- good for gymkhana and trails.

I too am in the market for a comfy new saddle for trail riding. I will be interested in what other riders have to say about their brand of saddle and price would be nice. Thanks in advance for letting me tag along.

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.

My favorite is a late 1940s Bona Allen; it fits my (very hard to fit) horse like a dream and is so comfortable for me that I'll never let it go. It took a loooong time and lots of saddle tries to find it though... ugh saddle woes....

I personally love my Circle Y deep seat. So comfy for anything you want to do! Saddleonline.com has good saddles with great prices as well! My friend got a whole tack set for cheap, too :)

I have a circle y and a billy cook. Both are barrel saddle but I trail ride in them too. Love both. Crates are also nice. Older textans, teskeys are awesome. Stay away from Double T and cheaper saddles. For $800 you can get a nice used saddle in good condition.
