Online bargain, yay!

Think I got a bargain here, just wondering what you all think? Paid $90 for the saddle, included running martingale, surcingle, girth, pad, stirrups & leathers, and had it sent straight to my saddler. He did a few repairs (the big repair on the flap was already there) - the stitching was gone in under the pommel and the girth billets needed restitching, and I've just got it back and I'm giving it a few coats of Effax. Needs a reflock, but I'll leave that until I've got something to fit it to. It's not a show saddle, but I think it will work nicely as a starter saddle for the Kaimanawa I'm planning on buying (or anything else small that comes my way).

Supposed to be a medium gullet, 15-16" seat. Previously used on a large pony. No major damage on to leather, but needed a few stitching repairs. Also got a banana box full of misc. bridlework and a bunch of 5" snaffles from the same buyer. Photos were all taken before I attacked it with Effax.
