Hello. I am buying my first somewhat expensive saddle. I have so far found these two saddles which seem pretty good.
The first one is a Martha Josey Barrel Saddle
Serial Number: 17345070103
She is asking $650 shipped.
According to the serial number, (if I decoded it correctly) it was made in 2003.
The second one is a Martha Josey Ultimate Barrel Saddle. (unsure of the difference?)
She is asking $800 shipped. According to the serial number (if I decoded it correctly?) It was made in 2004.
Both are the correct seat size as well as FQHB, which I believe my horse needs. Which would be the better buy?
