Dakota 420

How much should I buy this saddle for? Its a few years old. 16 inch seat. Rawhide horse, rawhide braided cantle, and rawhide stirrups. Leather has been treated pretty well but did have some stains on the seat and while I was cleaning it I found a bit of mold but nothing to horrendous. Guy has used it for penning and trail riding. How much would its worth be now? Its a ark mahogany as well and I've fallen madly in love with this saddle.

Here is the info on it now:

Dakota is a nice American made saddle for the money. Used I would pay ~$300 - 350 for it in the condition you described. If I really liked it I might go to $400 but that would be the top of the range for it. Discounted, the saddle sells in the $650 - 700 range new.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
