Where to get my dream saddle?
 
So, I'm saving up money for a new saddle. My price range is about $2000.
I'm looking for a really nice quality reiner, semi quarter horse bars to fit my narrow gelding, square skirts, rough out hard seat, and silver edges. Preferably a darker leather with nice tooling. I found a picture of one that is to DIE for, but I can't figure out the brand of it for the life of me:(

I absolutely adore my continental! It is the most comfortable saddle I have ever owned, and it looks great. They will build one to your specifications which is really nice. I got one with shortened skirts for my short-backed mare. They start at 2,000 and go up from there, but they were able to work with me a pit on the price when I told them my budget. It's a good quality product and all of their saddles are hand made.

Here's one that looks kind of like what you're describing... I think:

How about post the picture you found lol and maybe we can help with the brand name. Or can you not remeber the name to find the picture?

Oh here's a link to their website if you're interested: Continental Saddlery C.S. The Reining Authority

They also have a facebook page where they list the specials they have going on, if you want to look them up. They were super friendly and helpful when I talked to them, and all of their saddles have 5 star reviews on horsetackreview.com

WoW Ink!!!

That saddle turned out nice! I love the pointed square skirts...jealous.

Mango, I was going to suggest you talk to Ink I knew she ordered one and I have heard great things about Continental. I know some trainers that have them, and one I worked for even has her own saddle named after her.

You can also find a used Bob's in that price range but probably no silver. Teskey's used to make a decent saddle, but I just seen a ranch roper they made that I wouldn't put on a horse I hated....it was hideous and poorly built. Flat out sloppy.
