Crosby saddle

Is that a good English saddle brand?
Thanks!

So if I can get one with stirrups, girth and bridle for $150, that's a good deal?

No it's a horrible deal, someone is trying to cheat you, give me the details & contact for the seller & I will check it out for you, lol. Yes, if it's not wrecked, its a screaming good deal.

I wouldn't say it's top of the line, but they are good. I had an old Crosby dressage saddle. I loved that it had a close contact feel but it made me sore when sitting the trot.

It would be good to know what model of saddle. Some, like the prix de nations (I still have two of them that I still love) are VERY close contact and will do little to help you ride. That is what I like about them, but they are harder to ride in than some of the newer "puffier" saddles that have all kinds of knee/thigh blocks to hold you still and secure.

^^^ hahahaha! "puffy" saddle! I'm using that word. that is the most perfect word to describe some of the saddles that my barn mates ride in. Downright PUFFY!

Had one and loved it. That is a great price-so good I would be concerned. Make sure you check the tree.

^^ I agree very much with Allison and tiny here. They are not the top saddles, but they are very decent (and usually run on cheap side used). But as Allison mentioned some models are quite hard under the butt and don't offer much of padding. But for $150 it's a very good deal.
