Rocking R Saddle Help

Hi all! Still on the search for a new saddle, have gone through quite a few. Stumbled upon this Rocking R on my local craigslist for quite a good deal. They are asking $475. For all you who have Rocking R's do you like them, is it really a good deal? Would be using this as an all around saddle.

Over the years I've had several Rocking R saddles and have liked each one of them. $475, if the saddle is in good shape, fits your horse, and fits you, is a good price. I wouldn't hesitate to pay that price for that saddle - especially with a matching breast collar.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

Thank you! I've been scouring the internet all morning, and so far haven't come across too many bad reveiws if any on some sites. It does come with the collar and the rear cinch so I figured that was a plus! I'm going to ask if I can take it on trial and see how I like first. Usually people get weary with this, but I feel it's the best way to see. If not on trial, obviously just trying it then to see if it fits.

Good luck with it. BTW, the rear cinch should be included but the breast collar is an expensive give away.

It looks like a nice saddle and I have heard decent thing about them. I don't think $475 is a bad asking price at all

Looks good! I bought a rocking r saddle yesterday. :) I payed $450 but it didn't have a back cinch or breastcollar. This seems like a really good deal and I needed the saddle I got for trick riding (its a cutting saddle). So I had to make sure this brand has really sturdy trees, and they do. Even though I rode in mine once I think its going to be a great saddle and fits my horse and the horse I'm shareboarding PERFECT even though they are built really different.
