I don't want to say "unsuitable," but it isn't really that great for riding in. It's not built or designed very effectively. It looks like it's supposed to be a saddleseat/gaited horse saddle, which don't really make any real sense anyways.

you are right about the saddleseat. The seller stated that it is an older style of saddleseat saddle (before the "lane fox cutback" style) I figured since I only do recreational riding it wouldnt be a huge deal.

Almost definitively a saddleseat saddle.

So is there really much of a difference between an old style dressage saddle and an old style saddleseat saddle?

It surely is worth your $27 dollars. I assume shipping will be a lot.
It needs some oil (Lexol works well) on it.

You are correct. Shipping is $40. But I thought $27 dollar saddle was a more attention grabbing title than $67 saddle. ;)

I have a similar saddle that I used to use years ago to ride a flat shod walking horse in. It worked for me. I don't like saddleseat saddles that much any more, but that is just because I want more stuff to grip on to. I'm not as young as I once was. Give it a good oiling.

Regarding the indentations on the seat, is it safe to ride in that way? Or should I get it re-flocked??

If you hold the cantle against your stomach and pull on the cantle, if it is broken there will definitely be movement. These saddles were often referred to as Hack saddles. A hack was a horse that gave a nice ride with a bit of style. He was up in the bridle. Barnsby was a great english saddlemaker in the saddle capitol of Walsall England. This was a popular style for years until the makers began making saddles more specialized. I wouldn't worry about getting it reflocked but if you use it without a cloth, the sweat will begin to shape it better to your horse's back.
Speed Racer and boots like this.
