Are you seriously going to ride in that?!! It looks to nice to sit your butt in!!

Just out of curiosity, how much does it weight? Gidget had a Bona Allen saddle for sale a few weeks back and I was sorely tempted but it weighed 33 pounds and that's too much for me.

Same here. If that saddle had weighed under 30# we would've been haggling lol! I ended up with a 25# vintage Simco

The saddle in the OP is stunning! I too would be afraid to ride in it! It is just too pretty!

Great looking saddle! I still have my gpa's old Bona Allen, its an early 70s model and still a great ride. I wish it had a smaller seat, but oh well the hubby loves it. You should be able to put lots of miles on it, looks like it's in outstanding shape!

It's an Arabian show saddle. Circle Y made some that are very similar to that. Billy Royal, also. Simco, too, but theirs were a bit lesser quality.
