    Looks nice but I like my saddles to have knee rolls.

    I'm not sure what this particular saddle goes for. I would check eBay and see what's posted on there. If you have a lower budget for a saddle I think what you picked is fantastic. Stay away from those saddle packages, all the saddles are crap.

    There is also a good side that I keep seeing posted by a few forumers that has a lot of used saddles. I would also go and take a look at your local tack shop and see if they have some used saddles to compare prices with tho you will no doubt pay a lot more than you will find online.

    Good Luck.

    Thanks, M2G! They ask $500. I also stopped by local tack stores, but those saddles on consignments can be described with just one word... "crap"... (sorry!)

    I have seen them sell on eBay for about $200 tops. Everyone wants knee rolls now, so although the older saddles are still great quality, they just sell so cheap. I bet it is a nice saddle, and well made, but I wouldn't expect to get too much for it.

    Some of the newer crosbys were made with an inferior foam that compacts too much and then you saddle ends up with "saggy butt". That was the mid-late 90's.

    Thanks, folks! I passed on it anyway. I do agree $500 is little over (I've seen same looking with EVERYTHING included (leathers, girth, stirrups, pad) on ebay cheaper).
