I finally got a saddle! After 7 years of resenting western riding(no offense to all you western riders out there, that was just all I could ride and I am rebelious like that :P) I finally got my english saddle! Some of you may remember I was going too go with a Wintec but I found a Crosby and it was too good a deal to pass up! My mom just texted me and asked if I knew anything about Croosby saddles and if I liked them. I said that yes they are a very good saddle and next thing I know they bought it for me!! For $285 I got a 17" Crosby CC, idk what brand leathers and irons, a neoprene girth, a saddle pad, and saddle oil. A pretty good deal if you ask me, esp considering I was going to pay that much for the wintec at the tack store! Anyway, here are some pix, does it look to be in good condition? It needs a doog oil but the leather is pretty soft and supple. Also, can you tell how old it is and possibly what model? I have no clue. I am going to go try it on my horses tomorrow, fingers crossed it fits!!
