look for a quality saddle that is used
Winter or smith worthengtin
I love wintec and they are afforad
Honestly find a brand you like then look at consignment. Most of my tack is used and as long as the owner has taken care of it, it will last you. My tack always looks so nice and it is all used but a few things.
Silver fox saddles from JT International are pretty comfy once broken in. Super cheap! I bought mine for $100 new from a vender but I think it goes for $180 on the website. They are really nice for a cheap saddle as long as you take care of it. Love mine to pieces!
The wintec all purpose is 500 at Dover. I think they're really comfy
