Exclamation ~:Your Thoughts On A New Possible Saddle?:~

Hello :)

I am not in the imediate market for a saddle, due to us needing a new AC, but we have been looking around. We are thinking of getting me one for Christmas!! So we went to the local tack shop a few days ago, to try some out and see what brand 'fit' me best. Cowboy is a medium tree, and can even go in a medium-wide or medium-narrow, but best in a reg. Medium. So I was looking at those trees, and the way of fit. We were stricly looking around at this tack shop, becuase it is known to be a little pricey.

So, after trying out Collegiate, Stubben, and HDR, we decided that Collegiate looked/fit/felt the best by far :) The way the saddle is made just suits me. And I'm thinking it will fit Cowboy well. I found a certain type I liked too. It's below -
I just loved the feel and position of the Laureate. Now, I obviously can't afford a brand new saddle, so I was looking at used. The saddle at the tack store was around $650. Is this a good deal? Can I find cheaper? Where, and how?

Thank You :) Obviously, any nay-sayers please speak up!!

Lightbulb cheaper saddles

You can definitely find cheaper saddles by looking on google shopping. I really regret buying my HDR Revelle without going on google first because I spent like 1k on it!

I did a quick ebay search, & it looks like they have them available brand new for $608.95. I'm not sure what seat size you need, though.

I hate new saddles...I won't buy new anymore. I hate breaking them in, though for me english was easier than western. I mean, it's not a bad saddle but if you can find a used one I would go with that...Cheaper and already broke in. That's just me though, a lot of people don't share my mindset.
