Big Horn Saddle? (Pictures)

Hi everyone,

I have been offered this Big Horn saddle for sale for just $50 by my (awesome) trainer. I was just wondering what the general consensus was on Big Horns. Do you have one? Have you ridden in one? What did you like, what didn't you?

I've ridden in one once, it was older and seemed to be in solid condition. I found it to be very comfy. From the one ride I had I liked it.

What do you all think? (sorry, the pics were taken on a phone cam).

Also, I think it seems to fit her well, do you see any glaring fit problems? (I know there needs to be more angles, sry).

Thanks everyone!

Pics are not showing up on my end, unless you are talking about the Avatar Pic, if that is the Saddle I will give you 100.00 for it :)

Unless the Saddle has a Broken Tree or Ripped to shreds it is work 50.00 no matter what the age.

BigHorn Saddles are good Saddles

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

I'll try & post pics another way (I just copied and pasted- they're showing up on my end, wonder why they didn't make it to you?)

I wish it were the saddle in my avatar! That one is my trainer's saddle, it's a Clinton Anderson and is soooo nice.

I have yet to see it in person, but my trainer says the only thing it needs is a little TLC for the leather, everything else is sound. I will need a shorter cinch, but that is minor.

I have a big horn. It's about 15 years old. I still love it. I ride in a trainer now but one of "my girls" rides in it almost daily and she loves it. My only complaint was that it is a very squeeky saddle but comfortrable and has really held up well because it hasn't been really taken care of. Looks way better than the trainer I ride in which is not old at all.

A trick for squesky saddles it to put baby puwder in between the flaps of leather.

That is their Cordura Line, still well worth 50.00

That is the only ofputting baout the saddle- I'm not a fan of the navajo print.

Is is possible to dye Cordura? Or would I just end up ruining my pants?

You could probably due it but like you said it will probably come off. But a good price...pretty is as pretty does....
