ISO: Discounted Saddle Setup / Willing to work off the cost if local.

I just moved to Minneapolis last year with my family to attend seminary. I recently heard about saddle hunting and would love to get into it. However, the initial cost is a bit steep for a full-time student trying to support a family of 6 (3 young boys and a baby girl due in August! My wife is looking forward to some female company.) If anyone has a saddle that they would be willing to part with at a discounted cost I'd be most grateful. If someone lives within a few hours drive of the Twin Cities I would be willing to come out to your place and do any kind of manual labor to work off the cost. I have some climbing sticks so I'd just be looking for the standard saddle setup and a platform of some sort.

I don't have a saddle for you, but if you need some help on places to hunt around the Cities let me know. I'm in Apple Valley and typically hunt the south Cities. Where in the Cities are you?

Consider making a fleece saddle. Its a comfy, inexpensive option. There are discussions and instructions on this site, and on YouTube. Major costs after that would be your tether rope and a couple of carabiners.

I have a sit drag I will give you to make your own saddle if you’re Interested in going that route.
Thanks so much for your generosity. I have decided to try to make a saddle based off of the Wraptor design. I’ll post some pics when it is done.

A sit drag is a fine option, one I still use
there is a walkabout in the classifieds I wouldn't hesitate to purchase if I was in your shoes,
there are a couple of saddles for less that $200 new,
if you like the Anderson sling style look at the recon its like $150 shipped hard to beat IMHO very comfortable
