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.
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.
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
