eBay, less than $80 in many cases.
I took your advice about looking into the Selle SMP Trk saddles as I don't think a "Bent" is my cup of tea! Too low for me, especially if one has to deal with large dogs along the way. I would feel like "Alpo" to some of the dogs I come across when sitting low to the road! I'm also looking at the new Brooks C15 Cambium Carved that has a center cutout and is made of rubber for better "flexing" while riding. I may need to experiment with a couple different seats to see which works best.
