Good quality & inexpensive don't usually go hand in hand unfortunately, though if you look for an older used quality saddle they can be fairly affordable. I don't remember which member it was but someone on here has a really nice vintage Hereford for sale. I think for $600.
I have a few favorite makers, Crates, Bona Allen (all will be used as they closed after a fire in the early 80s) Charles Crawley (sold to Crates years ago) older Billy Cook's (new ones are much poorer quality) Circle Y's are decent and older Tex-Tans (Hereford)
I've also heard good reviews on Corriente saddles but have never ridden one.
