I got my saddle today

I went to a Tack swap today and bought my saddle. A Circle Y that fits me and my horse perfectly. I looked at a lot of saddles and sat on the ones I liked. I loved this one. The leather is very good quality, thick, yet very supple.
The general advice on here was to buy a really good brand and fitting saddle used rather than a new lesser quality and I am very glad I did. I could not have afforded this saddle new and it is by far nicer than anything I could afford new.
Here are pics. Sorry for the pic quality and for some reason in some of the pics the seat look very green, it isn't.

Very nice saddle-you should have many years of use from it.

I'm an English gal, but even I can tell that you did really well. Whenever someone says they have a saddle that fits the horse, and I see good quality leather and workmanship in the pic, it's time to celebrate!

I cleaned up the saddle today and dyed the seat black. Got to ride in it and it felt great. Now I am going to make a nice saddle rack.
