    Agreed, post a pic, but don't post the link... someone might snipe it from you.

    I adore my new Corriente. They cost a bit more than your budget, but are so worth it. I would save up and get a good used saddle or a Corriente. I don't know about your color scheme but they DO take custom orders so they might make one in black for you. I paid $760 for mine with bucking rolls (a wade) but I bet you could get a barrel saddle even cheaper.

    Anyway, any nice quality used saddle is better than brand new junk. Try not to get brand new junk if you can help it. Also, good quality used saddles hold their value (as do the Corrientes) but if you buy a cheapie saddle brand new you will likely loose a good chunk of money on it if you go to sell it.

    What my Dad always says is that if you buy quality you have quality. If you buy junk, you have junk. Quality will hold its value.

    Sorry, you are going from bad to bad.

    If you are OK with Cordura, try Abetta, Fabtron, Bighorn or Circle Y

    If on a budget, look for used in those brands, your Horse will thank you by staying away from those Import Brands

    Personally I don't like Hilason..so I would pass. Your question about leather quality, well that is only half the story, the real scary things are hidden away under the saddle in the cheapy brands, read this thread So you want to buy a cheap saddle package? please don't risk your horses health and your own safety by buying cheap and new stuff.

    I'm struggling to find anything in black, but look at this

    Vintage Hereford Tex Tan Western Horse Saddle Leather Tooled 16" 15" Pretty Show | eBay

    A saddle that is already broken in, who really wants a new saddle? Fancy enough to show, and a better bet than one of the cheap new models.

    Hilasons are not the best. Same with double t. Here are a few eBay things,not leather, but still better than those brands . Circle Y Park and Trail Western Saddle | eBay

    Idk the difference between gained and non gaited saddles, but this one looks decent. 15" Synthetic Gaited Saddle Western Black | eBay
    Wintec 17" Western Saddle Practically New | eBay
    For the price you are willing to spend you may need to get a synthetic. Maybe look on ebay, all these are off the first page from searching "black western saddle".
