Advice on these saddles please!

I'm going to see these two saddles tomorrow. They are in my price range and since the people have an actual business, I can return it if it doesn't fit my mare.

So what do you think of them? I'm leaning towards the first one as I think it would look real good on my mare and I just really like the look of it. But the other saddle looks real nice too with the silver trims and tooling. It also comes with a bridle and breastcollar. So what is your advice? Can you tell which one might be the better buy?

Here they are!

I like the all black one. The red seat puts me off the other one haha

they both look long. Didn't like the quality of black one at all. It was hard to tell on the red.

You don't necessarily buy a saddle depending on what looks good on your horse. You consider a saddle by what fits your mare and won't make her sore.

Get a saddle fitter out to tell you if the saddle will fit first. Trust me, it's worth it

I'm afraid that neither one is well made. I would continue looking.

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.

hm, yeah, didnt like the black one...definitely dont think its worth 400 least not down here in florida. could get something like that here for about 150....of the two i like the second one better. looked like better leather..older...better made but hard to tell. i hope your not buying these offline, but then again, you did say you going to look at them right? see if they will let you take one to try it first.
Good luck! =)
