English Saddle Question

I found an English saddle for sale locally that I'm gonna check out on a whim. Its listed for $45 and comes as a full set. It may just be a piece of junk, but if not it may be worth it. I've been interested in taking lessons since all I ever ride is western. The saddle's a Crosby, but I guess it also says Arabian on it. Has anyone ever heard of this?

Crosby (made in England) are good saddles. Arabian might mean a more wide tree. Can yo post a photo?

It's probably a Lane Fox saddle seat flat saddle with a 3" cutback instead of 4". (Shorter tree for shorter back.) If it's in good shape, buy it and resell it for up to $225 or $250 pretty easily, especially with fittings.

eta: I tried to find a pic of one but can't.
