I ride Usher saddles.
I switched to them a year and a half ago and cannot say enough good. This is the only saddle i've found that allows me to naturally roll my hips back in a turn. Plus, Joan and her crew are unreal to deal with. They go above and beyond.
Most horses fit a medium tree.
I have a medium and a wide and have yet to find a horse that I've struggled to fit "good enough". The unbranded line is an excellent option as well. My medium tree is usher brand and for my wide I decided to go with an unbranded. There is a definite difference in quality BUT I do not find it to be lesser quality than most other top brands. The biggest difference I noticed in my unbranded took a few rides to break in, where my usherbrand was 'broke in' from day one it felt like. I do recommend going with a pencil roll cantle as they ride a bit deeper than the cheyenne roll.

I won one at a race October 2017. Paid for some custom upgrades. Skirt came incorrectly and I had to pay shipping send it back for it to be corrected. I ordered a wide fit, fit my horse beautifully, unforunately it put my feet behind me consistantly. I tried to adjust the rigging that they add that is meant to keep your stirrups from getting behind you as well as different stirrups. I wanted it to work, it was SO comfy. But I ended up having to part with it and had quite a hard time selling it.
