I’m not for sure at the price, as I wasn’t there. He told me he almost got it for $150 but someone ran the price up, I’m thinking around $200. I wouldn’t have bought it, if I knew their was no place for the back girth. Being a cheaper brand doesn’t bother me as our other saddles are. At this point I did really need a saddle and it would have been a couple more months before I could have saved up enough money for the saddle I was looking for at $450 as a off-brand. I would like to get an higher quality saddle, but as a college student it’s hard, plus my saddle wasn’t fitting my horse right, so I haven’t rode since I tried our other saddle, that I though out isn’t good for a green horse as the seat is too slick.
Yes, there is mold on some of it, which, I’m pretty good at removing mold, as my Dad’s saddle mold’s every winter, no matter what we try. Most of the mold is removed, already, but two spots. All straps are good, it already looks better. Someone also mention something about how the finders are attached, can you please explain, because they are attached like my Dad’s saddle, and my saddle I was riding in.
Thanks for the help, I know what you guys are saying about getting a better quality, but finances aren’t allowing that at this moment. The money I had saved will be going to tack needed before we can ride again for my dad’s horse, only $40. As a college student, with a horse who tries to kill saddles, (we are working on this, she is very green broke. So we won’t be running barrels anything soon) Thanks, any help is good help.
