Seller says the tree is sound (from what I described for how to check it lol) and he thinks the only thing that looks like it needs replaced is the cinch..which I could care less about because I wouldn't buy it with any other saddle. The fleece looks like it's in great condition as well..The saddle is just filthy with dust, dirt, and probably spider webs, haha.
He said it was his dad's old saddle from when he was a kid and it's just been sitting in the garage for 17yrs. They don't have a use for it and they're selling it because they're trying to clean out the garage.
Soo..I'm super elated to have another saddle project! Weather is getting nicer so I can take the relaxing 3 days I'll probably need to get it cleaned up and the latigos replaced (I don't like leather).
Here's a picture of it that was on the sale ad:
I'll add another post with the last saddle I re-did. (:
