Nicaraguan saddle. How much do you think its worth?

My friend bought this is Nicaragua 6 years ago new and brought it to america. Used it twice, but it sat in her tack room and was never touched since. I was the first to clean it in a while. The leather is still safe and sound. So, my question is how much do you think its worth>

It is difficult for me to judge quality (vs other saddles made in Nicaragua) and what the demand might be for it.

Personally, I don't think it would be worth very much because the leather and workmanship appears to be mediocre at best, but that is compared to what I see on American made western saddles. This is pure speculation, but I think $200 would be fairly generous. It is possible to find someone who would pay more just for the novelty of it, but people like that are difficult to find.

I can't help but wonder if this saddle wasn't made for the tourist trade, not to be used- a conversation piece. This saddle would create a sore back in no time, the horse for sure and maybe even the rider.

I wonder too if it isn,t just a souvenir.

My parents are from a very horse-y town in Nicaragua, and what you have there doesn,t match the pictures of the saddles i've seen- which are usually decently made. Will show pics to my parents and see if they have any thoughts!

If you notice the saddle in this picture, they are similar in design

No idea on value

The Saddle Shop

When I was in Jinotepe Nicaragua for 10 day, I wish I had gone to some Saddle Shops, I like looking at other peoples ideas of Saddles, I saw some very unique ones in Panama and Costa Rica when I was there
