Since it appears Downunder Saddle Supply is permanently closed, your choices for Australian saddles in the US are going to be largely limited to very expensive ones (Syd Hill, James Saddlery, etc.) and cheap Indian/Pakistani/Asian-made junk (Australian Outrider/Tough-1, and other no-name brands). Avoid anything in the $500 or under range new-- it's cheap junk that won't fit you or your horse.
If you can find a store that still has some Kimberly brand, or find a used one, those are not terribly high-end but tend to be decent enough to work, fit the horse, and let you know if you like riding that style of saddle.
Mine has no horn. The horn on an Aussie saddle is kind of redundant... if the saddle fits you and the horse, you shouldn't need it as the poleys and deep seat keep you in place, and it's not built into the tree like a western saddle, so it's no good for ponying another horse, dragging a log, etc. IMO, a horn on an Australian saddle serves only to catch your shirt/coat/bra when you dismount. If you want a horn, go with a western saddle.
