For smaller shows around here, it's the same way. Judges don't count against you if you don't have 80 pounds of silver on your saddle. So long as it's clean and well turned out (which that saddle would look plenty nice enough with a bit of cleaning and oiling), then they don't care what you ride in.

I have one more feed store that does tack consignment to check. Going to go tomorrow and see what they have. If they don't have anything, I'll go ahead with the saddle on eBay. I'm just having trouble finding any saddles in the seat size I need that are in my price range (under $300) that aren't synthetic (hate the feel of them...that's what I was in when that bat-crap crazy mare threw me, so bad associations) or cheap crap.

I have dealt with this lady-she is really nice and reliable. I have bought and sold through her......so maybe check out if she has anything.

I like a couple of her saddles, but they're out of my price range.

I do find it interesting that on one of the Circle Ys, she has the gullet listed as 7" and says that's equivelant to semi-QH bars. The saddle on eBay has a 7" gullet measures concho-to-concho.

Franknbeans, how do you buy those Yucca Flats blankets and how much do they usually cost? I looked at the dealers, but the closest to me is in California (looks like northern or mid-Cali, too).

I got some AWESOME 8ft leather reins at tractor supply! I'd say you should get longer reins just in case, you could always have the extra behind your hand if your riding Texas style.

Unfortunately they don't have Tractor Supply in Arizona. Wish they did. They have some black media blasting sand I desperately want for my 75gal fish tank and they won't ship it.

I found a saddle! It fits me perfectly. Haven't tried it in the monster yet. It's on consignment at a local feed store and I have to go back tomorrow when there lady who takes care of the consignments is there so I can take it on trial to see of it fits. It's an older 17" Circle Y cutting saddle with basket weave tooling, matching breast collar and rear cinch, and a rough-out seat. It matches my bridle perfectly. The guy who was helping me makes saddles and he said it looks like it's semi-QH bars (we didn't bother to measure because I was kind of in a hurry since I was on lunch). Without further ado, here's a pic:



They're asking $350 for it, which I think is really fair. What do you guys think?

Without being there to look under the skirts at the tree and the rigging, it appears to be a really nice saddle. Definitely worth $350 if it fits your boy.

The guy who was helping lifted up the skirts and checked the rigging and everything for me. He was really impressed with how nicely it'd been cared for. The leather is buttery soft.

Like the saddle. Maybe they'd take $300? If so, that's more cash to put towards a nice saddle blanket to with it.
