A friend of mine just bought one of ebay new for $150. Its nothing amazing... like a circle y or billy cook.... but for the price it is actually a very decent saddle. We put it on 5 different horses to see how it fit and it even fits my gelding, who is the hardest horse in the world to get a saddle to fit properly. And she said it is every comfortable.
Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson
