where to find good western saddles
i need to buy a western saddle for my qh because i've been riding him bareback ever since i started riding him, and i think it's time for a change. :P
i'm willing to spend a few extra bucks because i don't intend on buying anymore horses (right now) that i need to buy tack for. so i can splurge. and because i want to buy something that will last and i will enjoy using.
this is the type of saddle i looking for:

but instead of a suede seat i would like a leather covered one.
i really just want one with tooling and that has a dark oil color. i don't plan on showing with this horse, and if i do it will just be 4-h or fun shows. i've been on tons of sites, looked on ebay, and been to a few tack shops, but i can't seem to find exactly what i'm looking for. anyone know some good websites or something? :)

What about a local auction? If you find what you want that's lighter colored you can always stain it darker.

i been to one lots of times in shipshawana (sp?)
it's a town where there's a big horse and tack sale every friday
it's the only one around, and i've bought saddles there before
and they're just not very good quality :?
but i just might look up other auctions near here
thanks for the idea :) lol

You bet! :D We have a local friday night auction too...usually its full of knock off cheap saddles but every once and a while someone will bring a goodie. Just have to keep your eyes peeled!
