Welcome to the forum.

What is your price range and does it matter if it is new or used, leather or synthetic?

I have a Victor (they stopped making them in the 80's- but they are AMAZING saddles) and love it.

If you can go used I would do that :D

She actually has 2 saddles for sale. One is a black Circle Y Equitation saddle with semi-qh bars and the other is a Rocking R Show saddle with full bars. What kind of horse do you have, how is your horse built, what seat size do you need, and about how much do you want to spend?

Those ranch saddles are HEAVY and the seats are not very comfy.

I have been riding english most of my life too but I do trail ride and I used to ride in a lesson barns western saddles all the time for trails. I loved the synthetic ones. They are light weight and very comfortable. They are also affordable. I would go for a cheap wintec if you are only planning to trail ride. Wintecs are great saddles and comfortable, for me, i dont think you can go wrong in one, unless of course it doesn't fit your horse.

Go for a good quality used saddle at your local tack store. Used is your best bet and usaully you can try out the saddle before you buy it.
