Crosby close contact XL hunter saddle?

My friend is selling a like-new one for 800, and experience with this saddle? It's very pretty Anyway, it's very comfortable and it looks like it will last but I thought I'd ask if any of you have experience with one ;)

Crosby's are great saddles. As long as it fits your horse, I would go for it.

Here's a used one for sale for $995.

Thanks for the review! Hers is some "rare" savannah color (not that I really care about that but it is pretty lol)

Havana? Havana is a darker brown usually, with some red in it.

Kind of like that, maybe with the dark parts a little lighter

$800 is too much for that saddle. It has plain flaps and no knee rolls, which is not in style. I wouldn't pay more than $600 for it.

Savannah is not a saddle color that I have ever heard of.

The Crosby XL is a very nice saddle. I have had one for about 10 years. It doesn't fit my current horse and I am also selling mine. 800 is a very fair price. Of course how well the saddle fits your horse is the most important factor when making a purchase...
A very comfortable and high quality saddle.
