Triple Creek saddles?

Anyone have any experience with Triple Creek saddles? I'm looking at one that will fit my daughter's horse, and the kid. It was custom-made in April, the seller has huge vet bills and is getting rid of a bunch of tack. I'm looking for information because if we get it, we will have it shipped here, I cannot see it first. She's sent me a ton of pictures (it's very nice looking).

Any thoughts on the saddle? The previous owner of the horse has used a Triple Creek saddle on the horse before, and this is the only saddle I've found yet that is as wide as her Crates.

Triple Creek Makes nice Saddles, they use a good brand of tree, SS hardware and a good brand of leather, never heard of any complaints.

Do you have pics and what price are they asking?

This is the saddle, I have more pics in my email, the fleece is literally brand new! It was custom made and received in April, she's dealing with some major vet bills. I don't know if $1000 is good or bad. I did ask her what a custom made saddle costs. New "factory" saddles are more than this one.

I'm really hesistant to buy a saddle sight unseen.

1,000.00 is too high for used. Almost all their Saddles are custom order/made

Compare some various models for yourself, looks similar to some 1,000 brand new models

It is much wider than any of their standard saddles. Have already dug around to figure that out. It is not a model that they have on their website either. It was custom made for very broad horses (per her email). I have offered her less, but she hasn't returned my email yet.

Up to you, I just think 1,000.00 is way too high

A special tree is a 75.00 upgrade, btw

It's a nice looking saddle. Buyer states-ASKING $1,000- that leaves the door open to offers. Hope you hear back from her.

I've actually been thinking about buying a triple creek barrel saddle. I want to order one of their silver series one, and it'll be about $900. I really think $1000 is overpriced. If you compare it to the ones on their website, it's kind of plain and looks like it might be brand new for $1000.

I have 2 and love them........I just ordered the basic model and stayed under the $1000 by just a few 10s. It cost me extra for the Aluminum Stirrups and the Black wrapped horn. If I wanted the metal laced back or exotic seat I would have had to go into the Gold Series which is over $1000. If you want custom like that it WILL be over $1000 and the saddle looks in GREAT condition.

So IMO.....if you like the saddle buy it. It looks to be in great condition. But if you want a new one for under $1000 you will have a plain saddle with very few things you can change without bumping up the price to over $1000. Also would be a good choice if you didn't want something super fancy.

The cheapest one on their website with alum. Stirrups ist $1200. The options she's added (per her email) are the lacing, extra D-rings, a 5" cantle, the 2-tone leather, and the back cinch with hoofpick carrier.

A couple of those options I would have done without, but the rear cinch, and the stirrups would be a must. A friend of the gal we bought the horse from bought a saddle with similar options recently for over $1500 new.

The real hold up is waiting for word from the seller about paypal. Buying something like this is risky, so I won't buy it unless I have paypal.

I appreciate your opinions on the brand. They were helpful.
