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.
