    I think that you have to make an offer before the first bidder...

    Maybe, but I've made offers that were accepted before. However - I'm not offering anything until the seller ponies up the information I've asked for. (Confirmed seat size and gullet width) I get the impression he really doesn't know much about saddles, though the seat does look pretty good sized.

    We shall see!

    Well, it really is a 20" seat! However, I'm not sure the gullet was measured correctly. Any guesses what it actually might be? If it really is a 9" gullet, it's going to be too big for my Dancer. She has high withers, but a broad back, making it a real pain to find a saddle for her...

    If you think it might fit, any idea on a price? I have an offer in mind, but I'm pretty sure it won't be accepted.

    Most saddles have bars that meas around 21". 17" saddles can meas 23". A 20" seat would have even longer bars. This is the measurement you need then compare it to the length of your horse's back. The square skirts may rub the horse's hips raw. A short backed horse usually needs round skirts. The saddle is an economy saddle and are notorious for not fitting horses very well. Have you asked what the tree is made of?

    The seller has no clue what the tree is made of - he's not very knowledgeable about saddles, period. I fear you may be correct about the square skirts - Dancer is very short backed. She may even be gaited (pretty sure she singlefoots, anyway) so she probably needs extra shoulder room.

    Oh the decisions!
