Name that Saddle!

So my grandfather and his wife got me and my cousin a saddle. They do not know anything about saddles. But they got this one for free and gave it to us today. I have looked all over the saddle and can't find a name brand on it. Any information on it will be helpful! I think it is super pretty and hope that it fits at least one of our three horses!
Sorry the pictures are so big! I tried resizing them!

I have more pictures if needed!

Looks like a Trail Saddle with a Beartrap Pommel, could be a Barrel Saddle as it has a 5" Cantle, not all Barrel Saddles have the tall Horns.

Looks kinda narrow, like a semi-qh tree, has rough out leather and roller buckles on the adjustment straps

I do not see the tell tell signs of an Import

Not all American Made Saddles have Maker names for some reason

Hope it fits one of your Horses

I had one just like it a few years ago. Never found any makers mark and it is a lightweight saddle, not up to heavy use..

What is considered heavy use? It was already used before I got it. I am hoping that I can clean it up a little bit.

Oh and does anyone know the value of the saddle? I am getting ready to look around online to see if I can find a name brand!

I never found a maker. I would say heavy use would be ranching or a lot of gaming.. Trail riding in rough terrain maybe also. Value I don't know. I sold mine for ?? $150. I think..

Many are sold on eBay. The tree is often warped. They look nice enough, it's what you can't see that matters. Sorry to disappoint you.

I agree it doesn't look like a cheap import. I think $150 is too low.

Not positive but I would guess around $300 - maybe more depending on the condition of the fleece.

I have the exact saddle. I used it for 10 years as a back up because I didn't want to scratch my Lamb saddle lol. Still have it, and am selling it for 100$. I only paid 150$ for it new, and it still looks brand new. I have used it pretty heavy at times, and its a darn good saddle. They arntworth much, but don't let that fool you.

To add also, if you have a high withered horse, it will not fit. It fits my fatty ok, but I sold it to a member on here, and it did not fit her horse she sent it back and I refunded her. They are all made with the same measurements.
