Ok. I'll be the first to throw out opinions. Remember, these are just my opinions. I would chose a saddle with more narrow stirrup leathers to give more relief on ankles and knees because you are a small person. Make sure one will adjust up short enough for you. Probably a 15" seat or maybe less. I want my saddles to have a solid rear D ring. Not inskirt rigging. I prefer a saddle with a smaller swell and a medium to high cantle. For trails, you might want the cheyenne roll and definately saddle strings. - Just a few thoughts off the top of my head. You really should go somewhere and sit on several before you choose. Best of Luck.

Additionally, I like the flex tree saddles.

Looks like a typical quarter horse back and withers. I would check her size by using Chuck's cut out sizing template to determine the gullet width and angle.

My wife is about your size and she really likes the Tex-flex pleasure saddle with a 15" seat. Chuck can suggest a comparable Circle Y

I don't think you will find a new leather saddle in your price range so you may have to consider a used quality saddle. My main advice is to make sure a used saddle fits the horse before you buy.
