Rode in a Dale Chavez saddle today. It was wonderful. Am looking for a replacement for my 16" saddle. These are out of my price range & I don’t want all the silver/bling. Can anyone here give me any idea what saddles might ride similarly?

What kind of saddle was it? Dale Chavez makes all kinds. Specifying might help you get suggestions.

It was a horsemanship/equitation saddle
