I posted this on the Tack Review thread but since this is actually more up the endurance alley, I thought I'd post it here too.
I have an opportunity to buy this Aussie saddle from my neighbor. We've been keeping an eye out for one for my husband after we lost his in a barn fire, but he's not a super active rider so we haven't been in a huge rush. This is a 19in Down Under. It has Down Under Series stamped on the outside flap. It doesn't give any other model name to let me know what style of Down Under it is. It's a little different from the Aussies I'm used to in that it doesn't have an overgirth. The billets are attached to the tree I'm assuming??? And are then guided down the inside of the flaps. The panels seem to be close contact cell foam. I don't know how old it is. Anyway, she wants $400 for it. What do y'all think? She's also letting me try her Annie George but she wants $1400 for that one and that's a little too rich for my blood, especially since I'm not really in the market for one for myself right now. 0712131046.jpg
