Anyone know about this saddle??

I saw this saddle on Craigslist and wondered if anyone happens to know anything about it. No brand or markings visible. I was thinking of using it as a trail saddle. DOes it look like a decent saddle? For some reason it looks comfortable to me. Does it look too wide for my 2 year old QH? WE have to drive quite a ways to see it, and if we do go, I will take an outline of my horse's back to check fit. They also said I could bring it back if it didn't fit. Any comments appreciated. Cost $150.00-

It may just be me, but it looks like it might be a wide tree or a draft tree. Ask the seller to measure the distance between the two front conchos on the saddle (the gullet measurement), and the distance for withers clearance (underside of pommel beneath the horn, down to the level of the conchos. If you take your tracing you can estimate the fit before you have to drive. For information on measuring saddle fit and comparing the 'tracing' to the gullet width of the saddle tree, Crest Ridge Saddlery has a great article that they use for their customers - - How to Measure for the Best Fitting Saddle
