If it’s an awesome deal and you get it much cheaper than it’s actually worth, take it and sell it for its proper price and use the money to get the saddle you want.

Since you're able to ride bareback, please don't think you need a saddle to ride a gaited horse because you don't.

The horse in my avatar has been with me 22 years; the only time I put his Plantation saddle on him, was when we went in a parade and we've done some hard trail riding in a few states, including SoCal

However, I still have 7 or 8 saddles left in my lifetime collection. At my age I need to start getting rid of stuff - I'll sell them to you

It is an addiction and I've sat on my hands many times in this life

I've often wondered why the western market hasn't kept up with the english as far as trees go. English saddles come in W, EW and EEW for those broad-back warmbloods. Can we get them in western-Nope. Even the so called gaited saddles don't have the flair in the bars that some gaited horses need.

Lord knows I love a good Western Saddle, there is a semi tree saddle they are fairly expensive tho. Unlike the treeless it looks just like a really nice western saddle with only a partial tree to help with the fitting of the horse while still giving the horse the protection it needs. I want a Tucker Trail Oh those are so comfy.

I love to buy tack also. I have a western saddle, plantation, saddle seat cut back and a Austrailan outback saddle. Looking at another western saddle.
