Saddle Flipping

So, I'm always looking for ways to make some money to afford keeping my horse. Lately, I've been buying cheap tack, doing some minor repairs, if any, and reselling it. Today on craigslist, I came across this saddle. Would there be any money in buying this and reselling it for more? How much would you price it?


Thanks in advance guys!

Those are decent middle of the road saddles. It is a good price, but two essential pieces of info are missing....what size is the seat and what width is the tree.
17-17 1/2 seat is the more popular size and a medium tree the most widely versatile, in my experience.

Where is this post from? It says Sanford....where is that?

If it's a 16" you'll have a hard time selling. Many riders are in 17.5 to 19".
