If you are comfortable in a 17" saddle, I wouldn't even waste my time with a 14-14.5"...ouch.
Fitting a saddle to both horse and rider can be a fancy dance. I know there are several sites for used tack, Tack Trader being one.
Good luck to you and happy shopping.

Thanks. I hadn't thought about Craigslist either.

And yes, I am comfortable in a 17 inch seat, but it is a bit too big for me. I'm 5"7 and weigh only 133lbs, so obviously a 17 inch seat is a bit big. The right seat size for me, that keeps me snug but not 'tied in' is about a 15/15.5 inch seat. The only reason I have a 17 inch seated saddle is due to not knowing anything about saddle fit back when I bought my mare's saddle. I've got used to the larger seat size, though...

I'm also interested in the Corriente (sp?) saddles... are they any good?

I got a Older simco saddle a year ago that is great for less that 400.00.
check tack stores and FB tack pages I bet you will find a great saddle there.
I am looking at a circle Y one this weekend for my daughter that sells for 1400 but used I can get for 650.00
Were you talking about Abetta or SaddleOnline?

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again

Stay away from e-bay..all those package deals are junk. Unless you REALLY know what you are doing stay away. And even if you do know what you are doing, how would you be able to tell if the tree was broken (etc) and that the person wasn't just going to screw you over

The Corrientes saddles from what I hear are decent quality..if you are dead set on buying new they are a WAAAY better option then the ones you have wanted so far. I saw one for the first time in person. And for the price I feel like the are worth the money and much better quality than the other new ones you wanted
