Yep, they might go to a lighter medium oil, but if you google AQHA western pleasure, almost all the saddles on the horses are light oil.

Well that's an interesting trend to go with.

Wow. I don't like riding Western. I feel frumpy and out of place in a Western saddle.

But that is a seriously beautiful and respectable piece of workmanship. Even if I never rode in it, I would love it just because it's beautifully made work of art and craftsmanship.

Definitely don't short-change yourself on that one. But I think you know that.

That is about what I was thinking for it. Not sure if I want to sell yet or not, going to see what life is like post-op first.

Yep, most people on the breed show circuit want light oil. Now the trend is towards light oil with black accents, which I think are hideous. The exact same saddle in light oil was priced for twice as much by the seller that I got this one from.

Thanks, I am excited and anxious about it all at the same time. Hoping that the third time is the charm. Not too excited that I will be on crutches and unable to drive for four weeks though.

I'd like to wish you good luck too... I may feel a bit of your pain soon here too. Probably going to need to get surgery on my foot, which also means crutches and no driving. >_<

Driving part is going to be a you know what...I work about 40 minutes from my house, and its going to really stink to have to ask my mom to take me to work every day until I can drive again. At least I work at a PT clinic so they are being totally accommodating, and I won't have to go far for therapy!

Depends I guess. I show quarter horses at the local level, and almost nobody uses dark oil here. Even among light oils, there is a difference in colors, some are very light, almost white blond in color, and some are a deep golden color, some have a reddish tent to them, some are light brown. All different sorts of colors, but they are all light colored.

My answer to how much would be that I wouldn't buy it all, because it's a very fancy saddle, but I would rather not use it at a show... if that makes sense. I'd probably pay about as much for it as I would to find a work saddle from the same maker in good used condition. And why have such a nice work saddle? I'd be paranoid that I would mess it up, when that's the point of having a work saddle and a show saddle... once to keep nice and protected, and the other to really "live" in.
