CTK Saddles for Gaited Horses

I recently ran across a unique looking saddle for sale (on consignment) at a local tack store - brand is CTK. The seller, according to the guy at the tack shop, rode MFT.

It reminded me a bit of a McClellan in the amount of open space beneath the pommel (no horn), but the back half of the seat was padded/cushioned. The skirt was round, the whole saddle was lighter in weight, medium tree.

Most of the clientele at that tack store are strictly QH people, and even most of the staff don't have a lot of familiarity with gaited horses.

This is the saddle I saw - not the EXACT one, but I found it on the maker's web page.

Just wondering if anyone has experience with this saddle, or the saddle maker? It looked and felt well-made, quality leather, etc. Person was asking $649 and it looked like new, but most of the prices for new saddles on the site are in that range as well.

Since I'm not actively saddle shopping (I ride in a Tucker, and love it) I didn't try it out BUT I wouldn't turn my nose up at having another saddle to play around in, too.

Thoughts?

Wish I could help, but I'm also considering a CTK saddle. (Need to sell my Aussie Muster Master first, anyone interested? :) ) I'm glad to hear you felt it looked well made, I've never seen one in person. If you get it, tell us how it worked out!

I have a brand new CTK Cinch for sale if anyone is interested?! I have never rode in a CTK but I know several people with Peruvian paso's who love them.
