Which saddle should I get?

Http://www.saddleonline.com/mobile_product_info.php?cPath=46&products_id=9099 or http://www.tackrus.net/5042.html
I love them both but I think the first one would be better quality. I would use it for roping, barrel racing, cutting, etc. So either one would work. I don't like how the breast collar and head stall that come with the green saddle are lighter oil than the saddle. But I could live with it if I got it. It will be going primarily on a bay roan Quarter Horse, if that makes a difference as to which one will look better. The green is very pretty, but the other saddle looks more practical in my opinion. What do you guys think?

To be honest neither, they are made in India with Water Buffalo Leather and generally with hollow fiberglass trees.

I have seen too many of those things fall apart, hurt Horses and Riders

I agree. If I had to choose, I'd go with the first one but I think you can get a better saddle and I think you can still stay fairly low in the price.

I'm with the other two posters and personally very suspect of no name saddles. You should really get a saddle locally try it on your horse and ride in it before you buy.

For western trail on my TB I like the wintec synthetic saddle. Can't beat the price, it's comfy and most importantly fits my horse well.

I have/had two other western saddles...a roper from Colorado saddlery and another trail from Colorado saddlery. Although these are very well made here in the US they don't fit my horse well.

Try before you buy!

For the price you would be spending on either of those saddles (especially the second) you can EASILY get a high quality used saddle in good condition. The green one says comparable to Circle Y, but with that price you could easily get the Circle Y saddles that I've been lusting over, and perhaps they'll even have some silver on them Much more practical, won't fall apart, and much safer for both you and your horse. Also, keep in mind that if you decide to sell a high quality used saddle then you have a great chance at getting back the money you put into it. If you buy a no-name saddle, then you'll be reselling it for almost nothing!

Good decision! Keep an eye out on Craigslist, tack trader pages, and eBay. I've found good deals through all of those avenues, all for less than these saddles new!

This is one tough, well made saddle, an older Simco. Rawhide wrapped wood tree, thick leather, real sheepskin. Pretty hard to kill this one. Just to show you the diff.
