    just wondering if it's worth it?

    Just a couple of pic's to see what you guy's think???...is it worth it? To sell and get a better one?, i've owned it for about 20 years, bought it second hand, first ridder didn't like it brought it back, it's in really good shape, never been restuffed no repairs on it untill now (stitching on the pommel needs to be redone).

    It looks like a good saddle but is old, so you wont get a lot for it. I think youd be better to keep it because the money you would get for it would only pay for a cheap crappy saddle.

    It looks to be in pretty good condition...What about just having it fixed and keep on using the old gal? Why do you want another one? I have a saddle that is older than me... its about (50yo) my grandpa gave it to me when we got our horses and although I 'd never sell it due to and emotional attachment. It is very broke in and super comfy...

    Now on the other hand... I have seen lots of ads on Craigslist wanting used english saddles. You might be able to get a fair price for it there.

    P.s. .... I don't know squat about english saddles It just looked nice to me.

    I agree, I love saddles like this: broken in and comfy! Why do you want to sell it? Doesn't fit your horse anymore?

    It does need to be reflocked. A knowledgeable buyer is going to mentally tack 100-200 dollars (some people are charging even more now) on to your price for that. Stitching is pretty negligible, but the state of the stuffing would make me think twice. To me, this would be an acceptable level of leather wear. If anything, the way it has worn tells me that the leather is of decent quality.

    Reflocking and replacing the knee roll could really make this like a new saddle for you at a fraction of the cost of buying another.

    Agree with everything that has been said, keep it. It's not worth selling. Obviously you have taken good care of it. Even if you get another saddle, there will for sure come a time where having this extra saddle is a blessing.
