If you want it gone, and in this market, I imagine it is going to sit for quite a while - I would shoot back at $650. Meet her inbetween. See what she says with that.

I have this same saddle except with the Genesis tree. I absolutely LOVE it. It is so comfortable to ride in. And yes I agree that you should hold out for the $700. This saddle is well worth that. I have seen some in my local tack shop that aren't in this good of condition trying to be sold for the same amount. I think that this is very reasonable for the quality that the buyer is getting.

Yep. Why not to try? May be you'll sell!

Sold it for 500...

I went to a show and one of the kids I ride with was in this horrible starter saddle. The black leather dye had come off and turned this funky burgendy color and then it was ripping and just awful. Her parents don't have a ton of money and they really liked my saddle so I gave it to them for 500. I also gave them my matching toulouse bridle for 50. But I have to tell you. The look on her face when she tacked her horse up for day two of show day was priceless. I never knew what a difference nice tack makes to someones self esteem. My saddle has a very good home now!

I even let them have the courbette leathers and the flex stirrups....

Now I need EVERYTHING!

LOL...

At least you enjoyed the face expressions! Good luck finding a new one that will fit!

Farmpony, that was very kind of you. It's always nice when we can do something for a less fortunate person, especially a youngster.

You measure from the stirrup bar down.
I know nothing about jumping so correct me if I am wrong. I would assume most jumping horses do not use a wide tree? Because I would think they are not typically wide horses? If that is accurate I would think you would not have alot of buyers for a wide tree jumping saddle

She has sold it so this does not really matter but that thought is not accurate.

My ammy adult hunter horse had an extra wide tree saddle.

She really deserved it. She was the last of the kids at the barn to get her own horse and it really took some doing for her parents to come up with the money. Almost everything she has is used. She has great grades and works hard....

So now my question is...

Tell me about your thoughts on the Pessoa and the Ovation? (someone said they have an interchangeable gullet)
