I'm trying to buy a roping saddle

Does the saddle in this craigslist post appear to be a roping saddle? I would love a response ASAP!!!

.

Looks like a nice older, maybe 70's era roping saddle.

Without knowing who made it cannot tell if it is a light or heavy duty roper.

If it fits you and your horse, then try for 250.00, should be worth that if everything structurally checks out


.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Thank you very much for the fast response, I sent an email to the owner asking if it says the saddlery. Once they get back to me on that I will ask you more.

that is an older style for sure. Many people can't stand the nearly bear trap style forks on that saddle.

The owner said there is no makers mark so is it worth buying even without knowing if it is a heavy or light duty roper?
