    Which one would you buy?

    I'm looking for a cheap saddle and found 2 that I'm torn over so I would like some imput please.

    Saddle made in Argentina by Cortina. No stirrups just the saddle for $50

    Really hard to see the second one. The first might be better.

    But, cheap saddles are never a good choice. It's like saying I'll buy a cheap horse, so i'll get a lame one, it's bound to be cheap (yeah, but you can't use it and you can't sell it when you try to get rid of it)

    However, there are some Argentina made saddles that are not bad. Maybe some research on that brand?

    Yea I know but he is selling it because he doesn't ride English and I'm going to check it out tomorrow to see if it's worth it or not. The second one to me looks REALLY cheap, but I don't know until the owner of it emails me back about the saddle.

    I'd go with the first one if it fits your horse. I believe Cortina is a decent brand, not anything high end but not a no-name either.

    Second one looks like a cheap no-name.

    I do question why each has a second set of rings in the front? Most I've seen only have the front one's under that small flap.

    The first one doesn't look too bad, but that second make my mind think "Run awayyyy!!!!"

    Really bad, crappy, cheap saddle.

    Yeah, those weird extra d rings on the front are strange. Never seen 'em before.
