    Dreamcatcher, when I texted the seller, I asked what size the tree was and he claimed to not know. I was going to look at it anyway (can't hurt to look), but since the lady wouldn't take back the first saddle, I decided not to go look at the second saddle. Ironically, the guy selling the second saddle works for the lady I got the first saddle from as a ranch hand.

    MMMMM, that raises all kinds of red flags. What kind of ranch hand doesn't know about the bars on a saddle? Not much of one or else a liar. Not surprised she wouldn't take back the saddle, she probably thanked every deity she's ever heard of that she was able to get rid of it in the first place. Brings to mind, "birds of a feather".

    When we picked up the first saddle, he was there and the lady confided that he was pretty well useless. Sold himself as a ranch hand, but doesn't hardly know how to halter and lead a horse, much less saddle one. The lady was friends with my boyfriend when they were in high school, so that's why we felt we could trust her.

    Another red flag should have been that when we went to pick up the first saddle, she had just bought a horse less than 24-hours before that was colicking when she bought her (according to the lady...I saw the horse first-hand and she looked exhausted and not feeling well, but not exactly colicky). Who buys a horse when they even remotely suspect that it's colicking?

    Drafty, I'm going to have my draft saddle with a 16.5" seat for sale pretty soon. Message me if you want pictures or anything!

    In that case, shame on her, she used her previous connection with your BF against you. Yeah, smells of real old fish! Well, once you get rid of the one saddle, if you can wait and save up a bit of money, then go looking for a good one.

    I was excited about it because I really want to start showin this year, but I don't have an appropriate saddle (just my Aussie since my Stubben doesn't fit the beast anymore) and no one I know has a saddle big enough for my big tush and the monster's big body.

    17 Inch Dale Chavez Show Saddle Like New

    I wouldn't have shown in either of those saddles. Check out this link, I put up a Dale Chavez because that's what I ride in and it's the most comfy saddle I've ever sat. They have all kinds in all price ranges listed though.

    My car isn't even worth half as much as that saddle is. Heck, that's literally as much as I paid for Aires. It would take me forever at this point to save up for something like that.

    Most of the people at our barn shows are showing in whatever they have, be it a trail saddle, roping saddle or pleasure saddle. Heck, one lady was showing her gaited horse in an endurance saddle.

    Oh Ok, if you're shows are nice and casual, heck go for it! I'm not used to people being able to do that. Sounds like a nice barn and group of folks!

    DraftyAiresMum the saddle I mentioned earlier is still available its a 17" FQHB Corriente used but still in good shape! It's marked $700.00 but if you talk to Paul at the CV shop I bet he will take less and you could make payments if it fits. It can't hurt to ask!
