The saddle you are looking at is an inexpensive one. That doesn't mean it isn't a good deal but that depends on how much they want.
It is a huge leap to go from a 14" to a 16 1/2" saddle. How tall and what is the weight of the rider who will be using it? Next, on any saddle I would buy, it would be contingent on fitting not only me but especially my horse. Many, many behavior problems with horses come from ill fitting tack. If you do not know a lot about saddle fitting, have someone come over (or you go to them) and check out the fit.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
