Would it be cheaper to get one custom made? One of my friends got a custom paisley barrel saddle custom made near me, and all together with the matching tack it's around 3k.

Not sure what Ink paid for hers, but Continental is reasonably priced from what I hear and you get what you want. Thing about a custom saddle is that you get what you want and if it ain't right, send it back. Plus they have good reveiws.

You can spend the same amount on a used Bobs and might have to sacrifice what you are looking for. Look up Bobs custom saddles...they are not cheap.

The earlier Chavez saddles are good, but from what I hear their quality is/was declining so I would be cautious there.

Depending on the level of shows you plan to show at you may be able to use a cowhorse or ranch type saddle that is clean.

LOL Thanks CowChick, but that's one I pulled off their website ;)

Here's what mine looks like:

I've got to add a few more coats of oil to darken it up a bit, but I'm really happy with the way it turned out. And it fits both of us like a dream! I paid just under 2000 for mine.

Ooooh I like it Ink;)

Im really wanting to start showing in te AQHA shows and I want something really classy, and fancy. I think I'll see how much this guy near me would charge, since there are a few specific details in the tooling and such I want and I know he is great at it.

My favorite reining saddles are made by Billy Royal. Mine is the Billy Royal West Coast Reiner. Best one I've ever had. It's not as "showy" as what I think you're looking for but you might look at the BR show saddles.

I bought mine used on Craig's list for less than half of list price and it was virtually like new.

Have fun shopping.... A new saddle is a fun thing!

I'm looking for a really nice quality reiner, semi quarter horse bars to fit my narrow gelding, square skirts, rough out hard seat, and silver edges. Preferably a darker leather with nice tooling. I found a picture of one that is to DIE for, but I can't figure out the brand of it for the life of me:(
