My husband just bought himself a REALLY nice saddle. It is a Western Star Saddle Shop trail saddle. It is beautiful, it has basket stamping with little tiny stars all over it. He rode Dumas in it yesterday and it fit like a dream! Him AND the horse! But the dang thing weighs about 50 pounds! (found it in a pawn shop for $300 that included an extra girth and saddle pad.)
I have a barrel saddle - don't know the maker but its a really nice saddle. ( got it at a horse auction for $125)
My old saddle - also no maker's mark This one is about 50yo. My gpa bought it for his kids to ride in. It really reminds me of an old Herford saddle. Super quality built.
Then my $50 yard sale saddle... It has severe wear but is still solid its nice to have an extra.
And last but not least we have a synthetic/leather saddle that was borrowed and it is junk! Pinches the horse......we don't use that one any more. Guess I need to give it back. Lol
