This saddle(Premium Training Leather Western Horse Saddle 16 17 18- Western Horse Saddles - Saddle Online) usually costs $799. It is on sale for the new year.

It's supposed to be a training saddle but it's skirt rigged. Look at the front and rear views notice the leather thickness? Synthetic wool, cushy seat and I didn't see a maker mentioned anywhere or mention of tree material. All bad signs.

I have had luck at local tack swaps. Used, but often in decent condition. And you can touch and feel - that's always good!

I don't like new saddles anyways you have to break them in I like the slightly used :)

Stay away from SaddleOnline and ANYTHING brand new that is that cheap! Really dangerously poor quality.

It's junk! If your budget is not really high, find a used one. I did for my second saddle and I actually use it more than the one I bought new. Please do not try to convince us to tell you to buy it. We are trying to help.

Give that saddle a year of use and that crappy riggin will be pulled out. And these are some of the most ill fitting saddles you can find. Cheap leather, cheap hardware, cheap tree. Do you and your horse a favor and invest in a good used saddle..

Non of those saddles are good quality, if your budget is $300 go for a used name brand one. Names brands like
Circle y
Tex Tan
Billy Cook (from Sulfur OK, not TX)

Would be nice used saddles, are you looking for a training saddle, trail or?
Again go used if you can not afford a new one. Your horse will thank you I promise

If you have a low budget and aren't showing, why not look at synthetic saddles? They're usually a lot cheaper unless you are getting something fancy and hold up pretty well, this coming from the woman who rode 5+ hours a day as a trail guide in a abetta and wintect :)
