I would pass on all three. What are looking to spend? Maybe we could make some suggestions :)

I want to spend around $300. Sorry about the links. It probably wont help to re-post them?

WOW, I just had a look at them all on ebay. THEY SUCK. The ones they call wade saddles don’t even remotely resemble a wade saddle. Find a good quality used saddle, that would be your better option.

Saddles made in India, look pretty at 1st glance, because the pay the artist 2.00 per day to engrave the fancy details in the leather.

But looking pretty and being a good saddle that will not hurt your Horse is two different things.

The ads say cowhide and hardwood and I have some dry swampland for sale.

If 300.00 is your budget, look for a used name brand.

I would agree with what was said above. The wade IS NOT a wade. Just a small friendly piece of free advice. Buy the absolute best saddle you can afford. Not neccisarily the most expensive mind you.

A few years back I had a friend of mine shopping for a saddle. She found one of these saddles on ebay for right in the same price range. She also found a really nice rocking r saddle for 700 bucks. She asked my opinion and I told her the same thing. She opted to go with the cheap saddle. When she got it, it felt like riding a fence rail, and the tree was aluminum. It didn't fit the horse and after about 3 months it was literally falling apart. She ended up paying more in the long run than if she had just dumped a little more money up front.

There is your free advise and worth every cent you paid.:D

Unfortunately, any new western saddle that only cost a few hundred dollars are going to be crap. Generally speaking, pretty much any new saddle (with the exception of a very few smaller custom makers) that is less than $800-$1000 is going to be crap.

If $300 is your budget, like others have said, look for a used big name brand saddle...or keep saving your money and get a better quality new one in a few months.

For just a bit more, you can get a new custom from Corriente that is really good working quality. Mine cost less than $700 and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Yeah I was also thinking of getting a used one. I saw a used simco for $300 a little while ago but missed the auction because i didnt know what size it was. Strangely no one was bidding.... I;m still mad at myself for not taking the chance and bidding.:-x
