Western Saddles
What are good brands for western saddles. I am looking for a leather saddle, preferably a barrel saddle, but can be a trail or pleasure saddle also.

I am not willing to pay more then $300 dollars for a used saddle but I am just looking for brands right now.

Any suggestions??

Probably easier to post a review site, there are so many Brands

Good brands are Circle Y, Billy cook, Tex tan, Crates, teskeys, Corriente, some people like Dakotas as well,to name a few. If your willing to do the search you can find a good name brand used saddle. Do not my any saddle new for $300, they are loads of crap

I can tell you right now your not going to find a decent saddle for under $ or used.

I like Double Js, Triple Creek, Running P....and some other popular brands are Circle Y, Billy Cooks, also crates (which you can buy them pretty cheap new).

In that price range, an Abetta may be about as good as you'll get. They run about $400 new, but they aren't leather. Fairly sturdy, tho, light and easy to care for.

Even on E-bay you are unlikely to get a quality, leather saddle that comes from a reputable maker for what you want to pay. Most of the "great deals" you will find on E-bay at that price are going to be poorly made (to the point of risking safety and well-being of you/the horse) and of crap materiel.
