Three Saddles for $275

I just bought three saddles and misc. tack for $275. The saddles are in rough shape. But I was thinking that for $275 each saddle would probably be $50 each. Bits $10 each, saddle blanket $20 and bridles/reins/breast-collars for $35 used and other stuff. The one first saddle is a 4677 Cortina 18". The second one is a western saddle that I can't find the name brand. It looks like the underside is going to have to be re-fleeced? Along with stuff around the horn. The horn feels okay. Not loose or anything. The third saddle the lady told me it was a Barnsby Jumping saddle. I couldn't find where a Barnsby name on it but found this: J.W. Barrington & Son. Importers of high class saddlery. 73, Adelaide St. West. Toronto. 2. Made in England. Flexible Points. Springseat. Below are pictures of the saddles. Sorry if they are big. Any help would be also!

The Toronto 2 address denotes our old postal code that was changed about 1973. It appears to be a quality saddle. Cheap ones would have all the tufting underneath. Back then there really weren't any cheap saddles, not like what we see today.#3 appears to be a close contact. Can you post a side view of #1? The fleece on the western appears to be just how it was made. I can't see that it needs replacing. The tree is fiberglass.

I have an old cortina saddle made in argentina very similar to yours that I've lovingly lugged around forever and it's still one of my favorites because it isn't my 'nice' saddle so I don't feel bad scuffing it up and really working it in and so far it's fit pretty darned near all of the horses I've put it to also.

life has no remote control hitch them up and drive them your self
