Dale Chavez

How is the quality of Showman saddles?

I am looking to purchase a western pleasure show saddle. I have a very limited budget (like $500, which is nothing when it comes to show saddles). I only show at local shows, probably not even at the regional level. My daughter will also be using it for 4h. While I would love to buy a Circle Y or Dale Chavez or something of that quality, it's impossible to come by where I live at anywhere under $1000, even used.
I found a Showman, lightly used, fully tooled and some modest-not over the top silver. What are your personal experiences with this brand? Is it going to last more than 1 season? Are they comfortable?
Here is a link of the saddle I want to purchase. This is not the price I am paying or where I am getting it, but this is what it looks like.

well, look around, and you might could find 1 in your budget, i did. i only payed $500 for my circle y show saddle. BUT i bought it from a friend. so you might ask around at the shows, and see if maby 1 of them may have 2 they arent using any more.
