You guys in the USA are very lucky as you are spoiled for choice! To buy a brand new Wintec here in NZ we pay over 3 thousand dollars. To get a "good" brand of western saddle start saving your pennies 'coz you won't get any change from 6 grand. We do not have a great range of saddles brands here either, I couldn't get a saddle to fit my draft, not even the Wintec interchangeable gullet system and certainly nothing in the western range. My only option was to have something custom made but that would cost upwards of 8 grand.
While I agree with you Skittle1120, sometimes people have to take what they can afford in the hope that later they can get something better. Anyway I love my Abetta, it is comfy and fits my horse really well, if it only lasts three years and I have to buy something new I get all the pleasure of saddle shopping again!
