Crates saddle I just bought...

Okay, so I just bought it. The horn needs some rewrapping but I only paid 95 dollars for this saddle.
It looks a bit dark cause I've been cleaning and moisturizing the leather. It needed some TLC for sure.

What a steal though! I need your luck. Haha.

Very nice looking saddle. It looks very comfortable.

Yah I pad an extra ten because some guy had actually contacted her first, but I googled the brand and asked here, and decided it would probably be worth the extra ten.

confess: sorry poor guy who emailed first.... >.<

Sigh...I wish I had your luck. I have never found a steal of a deal like that one. A nicer saddle is the next item on my "need to get" list, and I so love Crates, I kick myself for letting my last one go.

Enjoy your pot of gold!

Live well, laugh often, love deeply...An' it harm none.

Good trade, good trade! I sold a Crates trophy saddle that was 15 years old for $500 about 4 years ago.

Hurray! I'm pretty happy. I wanted a western I can use for trails and I've been scavenging Craigslist for days... Next I hope I can find a good English saddle steal. Luckily the one I have right now will do until i need something fancier. :)

Thanks a ton for comments, I was worried at first that it wasn't that great of a buy

I want to keep it. I needed one for bumming around trails. I'll let you know if I change my mind though. :)
