looking for a new english saddle!

Looking for a new saddle.. A lady that just came to my barn is switching from western to english and is buying mine since she loves it so much!

Requirements:
17-18", as long as it fits my longer leg
Narrow/regular tree to fit my narrower and high withered QH
Price under $400, give or take a few bucks
AP/jumping saddle or at least something comfortable for trails or jumping
Preferably not black, but definitely willing to look into a black saddle

If anyone has a saddle they have for sale or knows of a good one, please help me out! Or if someone wants to go saddle shopping for me, feel free to post links :)

I've seen yours and I'm definitely keeping it in mind. I'm just reallyyyy wanting to get out of black tack, I like a medium-dark brown on my pally a lot more :)

Here is one on ebay that I am really thinking about bidding on:
eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

Also thinking about these:
eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices
eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

Thoughts on any of these are much appreciated :) it'll be used mainly for trail riding and schooling (jumping). No showing or anything, at least for now :)

I'm very suspicious about the 1st one: Exselle goes for over $1000 new, so $150 for the brand new saddle sounds very very strange (EVEN for eBay).

Don't know about 2nd saddle, but 3rd one (Collegiate) is a nice brand and price looks right, however it doesn't look forward enough, so if you plan on jumping and have long legs I'd keep looking.

How forward should the saddle look? I'm still learning about all this so if you could post a picture for comparison that would be great :)

Wintec are AWESOME for all purpose riding, and very affordable/durable.

I have a pretty rare Bona Allen brand english saddle. 17.5 inches, regular tree, if not narrow. It is in really perfect condition. No knee rolls/thigh blocks to get in the way. The billets are in great shape and the flaps are long. The flocking is compact, but the tree is solid and it is very very useable. You may want to put a lollipop pad under it so it lifts the saddle up a bit, but that is just for comfort.

I love this saddle and use to use it on a TB/QH X who was quite withered. Now I have an Arab and ride western.

Here are some other pics of the saddle:

billets | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
back of saddle | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

All really well kept QUALITY LEATHER! I will include a good quality english bridle (on the horse in picture) a slotted kimberwicke snaffle. Also will include a fleece covered girth. Not sure of the size, I think 48 inches. This saddle DOES NOT HAVE LEATHER OR IRONS, SO NO STIRRUPS!!! But those are easy to get.

For all of this I am asking 300 OBO, shipping included if under $40.00.
Let me know if this is something you would be interested in.

Also, the Bona Allen saddle is an old style jumping saddle. This is not a cutback saddle.
