I dunno WS, I've always thought Western saddles needed more 'stuff' than English. Y'all need latigos, girths, all those heavy pads, and most folks use breast collars.

True, this saddle didn't come with stirrup leathers, irons or a girth, but those are rarely included, and a girth should be specific to a particular horse anyway.

It's definitely not a saddleseat saddle. As another poster stated, it looks more like a GP to me than anything else.

OP, hope the tree isn't broken, and you got a fantastic deal.

You don't need a whole lot.

Pair of stirrups: $25
Pair of stirrup leathers: $35 - $50
Girth: $35 - $50
Saddle pad (optional if the saddle fits correctly): $25 - $50

I'd treat a pad as essentially. Saddle's old, flocking will be fairly well compacted (hard) and may be a bit lumpy.

Personally, I'd use a pad. Assuming the width's okay, that is.

Hence why I mentioned it's optional if the saddle fits.

Saddle could be reflocked easily.

It looks like an old dressage saddle before black became "in style".

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
