Wanted: Quality new or used western draft saddle

Hey all,
As most of you know, I just started my Perch John under saddle in January and I was using my full QH bar roping saddle at first. Now he has really bulked up some more and I cannot get it to stay put no matter how tight the girth is. I am looking for a western draft saddle with a 16" seat. He is a big boy (about 2000 lb) and will need a big tree to fit him. My budget is about $750 and I don't need something fancy. Just functional and decent quality. I have scoured the internet but maybe someone on here can help me out or at least tell me which brands to avoid. Everything in my local tack store is $1200 and up and I couldn't find anything I liked even if I could afford that.

Thanks in advance.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Just a thought www.jeffersequine.com has a draft western saddle for $849 I know that's a little more than you quoted but just something worth looking into.
