Hi there! I actually like used saddles over brand new saddles, as they're already broken in. I really like the Antares, and you can get a demo saddle Antares for $2500-$3500, and they're like a lightly broken in new saddle & much cheaper. I also like the Delgrange, although there aren't any dealers in the US at the moment, so it depends on your location & whether or not you use ebay, etc. The CWD isn't bad, but I prefer the Antares over it, it kind of depends on your taste. If you'd rather save money, a good starter saddles are Pessoa, Ovations, Devecoux and certain Bates. Just don't get an adjustable/changable gullet. I suggest trying to find a horse first, and then finding a saddle to fit the horse's back. Good luck!
