I would really go for a Corriente or a used name brand saddle, like circle Y, Billy cook (the ones from OK, NOT Texas) tex tan etc. Stay away from double T, circle S ect they are all crap and are not worth the shipping cost... Really just read, read, read about saddles. If you spend the time you can find a nice used saddle for cheap. Save for a little longer and you can get your self a nice saddle heck maybe even a new corriente. I believe they range from like $550-$700 depending on what you want ofcoarse
I found a Congress Leather show saddle that is 5 years old ( not used often)
Are these ok too?
I got in contact with corriente, the cheapest is their barrel saddles at 495? I need a pleasure/show seat for every day use. :/
I've been looking around for the names stated before, but no one has what Im looking for. Lol.
Sorry, but I've heard nothing but bad things about these brands. :( For a cheap but good quality saddle, I'd say your best bet is to look for a used one if you can. I'm sure there's something else you could find that works, though!
