ANOTHER possible saddle, Derby Originals

What of these saddles? Lol..

That user also has other saddles for sale that are older that I like. I'm looking for a 17" :)

That ARgentine saddle is the best made of the three and looks like a sturdy jump saddle. It has my vote on a very quick perusal. Depends on sizes, tho.

The Argentine made one it the Rossi
The first one is a piece of crap and will fall apart in no time

The second one, hard to tell, but it has no knee rolls and I think you want knee rolls.

I like the third one. Sturdy, price is right.

Hah, of course the nicest-looking one is the most crappy. I will keep looking then. Maybe it is best to just expect to spend more money for a higher quality saddle :/

Yeah, I would take your time and save up some more money for a better saddle. You'll regret buying a cheap saddle.

Are you looking for looks? Or function? Or cheaps? The prices of all of those were extraordinarily low. I wouldnt buy a saddle at all in that range unless it was a good quality old saddle that was beat to bits, but was still a quality saddle. Those pretty, shiny starter sets are garbage and once they start to come apart, you have nothing. An older saddle from a reputable maker, has resale value.
You may have to come up several hundred dollare. Look in the 300$ at least range. $500 would be more like it.

I think my best bet for a quality, cheep schooling saddle would be to go for a wintec.
