Western Show Saddle
 
I was wondering who makes a good western show saddle, quality is a must! But it is also going to be my first nice show saddle, hoping to stay tan in color. I want to keep it under $2000 for sure.
Does anyone know of a good place to even order saddles? or just reviews on who makes a good saddle and which ones to stay away from.
Thanks :)

PS price would have to include shipping it to Canada.

I like Crates. I have an older crates show saddle that is in excellent condition and good quality. It is so comfortable I even trail and road ride in it. Fits my horse like butter.

Showman is another good saddle reasonably priced

How much do they run usually?

If you want a "quality" show saddle not going to find much new at that price:-(. I would check out some used ones. Usually show saddles are in good shape as they have been kept in saddle cover & mostly just used when showing.

They always have a few on here:D Tack for Sale, Canada, USA.

Ok thanks and ya I know but I cant see myself spending almost as much as my horse on a saddle lol

It seems like Showman have decent saddles in my price range... has anyone heard good or bad things about them?

If you can find an older blue ribbon/Harris they outlive themselves and hold their value extremely well. My blue ribbon is from 1994. other than knowing the variances in styles, you'd never know.

Billy Cook and TexTan have one or two that might be under $2000 and they're not too bad.
