Just an idea of what you can find in used saddles. I found a gorgeous, fully-tooled, and fully-rigged (front and back cinch, all billets/latigos, AND a matching breast collar) Circle Y cutting saddle in perfect condition for $375 a month ago. Bummer that it didn't fit Aires.

Here’s a couple you might want to look at, the first one might need a bit of restoration, at the very least re lining.

14 '' Vintage Antique Western Highback Saddle Brass Leather Roping Riding | eBay

Vintage Western Saddle | eBay

Nice Western Antique Hardseat w Ties 14" Trail All Around Saddle Solid No Res | eBay

this one would need relining at least as well

Sargeant Western Store Barrel Saddle 14" Seat | eBay

Anyway, these ones might need a little TLC to get them into working order but they would be better than those other ones.

Is it my computer? None of any of the links work. I get a message about diagnosing the connection.

Yeah, I just tried it and got the same. They worked when I posted them. I’m a numpty when it comes to computers so I have no idea what the problem is. You should be able to copy and paste them into the ebay page though.

Type in Vintage western saddle into Ebay and you should get heaps of saddles that look way better than any of those “wade” saddles etc that come from India. And some of them are cheap. Don’t know about the brands etc but some of them don’t look too bad. If you picked up one of them cheap you could probably spend a little getting a saddler to give it a service.

Well, either way good quality is always better to ride in, and from the horse’s perspective be ridden in, and will last a lifetime. What I did when I was first trying to get a good saddle was just to wait. I had an old hunk of crap Sid Hill Barcoo Poley, it was terrible, I stopped riding in it when I was 17 or 18 when I got a job as a ringer (Australian version of a cowboy) and used one of the station saddles (which was also a Sid Hill Barcoo Poley, but a bit better than mine). In the mean time I saved every cent I could to pay for a custom made saddle; a real custom mad one, built to my specifications. I now have two of them, both are now around 18 years old and aside from looking worn in, they are in as good a condition as the day I got them. If you can, it’s better to make do and save and buy the best saddle you can, it makes a difference over a lifetime.

Like others have said I would save a little bit more money. You can get a good quality used saddle for a few more hundred bucks.

I have always bragged on the Corrientes like smrobs has. We are going to get one like hers for our little gray mare. I have had plenty of folks that have had them think they are great plus they are affordable.
Look on their website and they also have a sale page.

I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.
