Getting a dressage saddle
I am buying my instructor's old Dressage saddle, now that he has a new (and really nice one from Hanover) saddle. But, we aren't sure how much we want to sell it for.
It is old. But it is still in usable shape. The fenders(?) Are a bit stiff, but with some proper care and oiling, they will be good in no time. It did have stirrup straps that went with it, however, they got about a quarter of the straps chewed off by a packrat.
I did think previously that the billets were chewed, but they haven't been touched, if anything just slightly stretched on one of them.
I will get pictures this weekend when I see it. We didn't find a name on it, but if there was, it might have worn off from its use.
How much would you pay for for a good, old dressage saddle that is "generic"?
