Question ! Just Brought this Saddle on eBay ! ? What do You Think ?

So, after long hours searching for a treeless saddle on eBay, I found one. I made an offer for it and the seller accepted . It comes with a girth so I already have a saddle and girth. What else do I need? I know that I will need:

-Stirrup leathers with a breakpoint [Because I believe that the leathers attach to this saddle on D-rings and not e bars]
-Safety irons.

Here is the saddle: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260890811085&ssPageNam e=ADME:X:RTQ:GB:1123
Please tell me what you think! .

Just because there's fleece at the bottom of the saddle doesn't mean you shouldn't use a saddle pad, regardless of what the ad said.

Unless this thing is some sort of bareback pad with stirrups? The photo wasn't very clear on my phone.

Oh I forgot to say that I have also ordered a dressage pad on eBay. It IS a treeless saddle and I will be trying it out as soon as I get it (And if I don't like it then it will go straight back on eBay).

A dressage pad may be too long for the flaps of your new saddle- you may need an all-purpose pad. Good luck.

Thanks . I only ordered a dressage pad because of horse comfort/spine clearance. I'll be getting more stuff soon though, after I sell my Welsh D!

Exactly which pony do you intend on putting this saddle on?

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Height doe not dictate saddle fit, you may also want to ask permision from the owners of said horses because by using an unfitted saddle on many horse, not only are you risking doing SERIOUS PERMANAT damage to the horse back, you are also risking transfering infectiou diseases and fungus'.

The saddle wont show up, could you find pictures of it elsewhere? What brand and model is it? Also what breeds of horses are you riding? Like faye said, height does not dictate saddle fit. My grandpa's little 14 something paint fits the same saddle I ride my 15.1 quarter horse in.

I understand what faye said and she is absoluteley right however, I have a saddle fitter coming out on tuesday. It is of unknown brand/model. Welsh D's, when we had our saddle fitter come out they were all in two different sizes so I'm going to be using my old saddle too!

Faye, I understand the deasise/fungus thing,I have different underpads for each horse, just so you know, I also wash my saddle pads 3 times a week.
