You guys are getting hung up on the cost of the saddle instead of the question. We do not know the financial position of the OP and it is possible that the expense of the saddle is not the issue and that although the $4,000 may seem exorbitant to most of us, it may not be with her; so to advise her that she is paying a lot for a saddle is not the point of the thread.
Yes there are good buys out there but if you were in a position, and I'm not saying that the OP is, wouldn't you buy the best you could? Just as $1,000 is quite a bit for a saddle to some, $4,000 is reasonable to others. Keep in mind that she is considering horses in the $20,000 range.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
