western saddle reccomendation

So I'm looking around for a western saddle the one I was looking at didn't fit very well so still looking...
Any recommendations on a good western saddle? I live queensland, Australia. I don't care if its not flashy, I just want something comfortable for me and very comfortable for my horse :) Shes a quarter horse but not very wide so I don't know if she needs full bars or semi. Can you give your opinion? I was thinking of getting saddleworld to come out and try some on her but I bought a stock from them a while back and so at this stage don't want to make them drive all the way out again for another saddle...and they try and talk you into what they suggest like half breeds when I just want a western. I've always dreamed of owning one.
What will I be using it for? bushriding, trail riding, maybe in the future a bit of teampenning(one could hope) something so that I can grab onto the front when she pigroots would be good and feel like it actually holds me in.
Any suggestions on what I should have a look into, recommendations..

heres photos of her body...

Sorry, I wish I could help, but I hope you find something.

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/

I'm not really familiar with what is available in Australia.

If you are willing to pay the shipping, I would recommend looking for a ladies all-around saddle like the Sharon Camarillo all-around or something similar.

I have a Hereford brand saddle that is superb. I love it so much it fits me and my quarter horse so well. He is built a lot like your mare. I don't know what the exact saddle is but I can find out if you want.
