western saddle hunting...opinions on this saddle

well we stopped by a tack shop near us and they had a nice leather western saddle on consignment there and wanted to know what you all thought of it. They are only asking $350 for it, and IMO it's a good price for it....I don't know the brand nor do they list it.


15" Western Saddle, QH bars, includes bridle with reins, and off billet. No tie strap or cinch. Very good condition. $350.00*

How well made do you think this will be? I mainly plan on using it for pleasure riding, trails, and possibly some shows, but I doubt I'd show anytime soon.

Thanks so much....I'll post more when/if I fnd some I like

Custom Ranch Saddlery Western Saddle, 15" rough out seat and fenders, QH bars. Like new condition! $400.00 *


What do you think would last the longest? Worth the price or worth more than the asking price? Which would you choose? Thanks

I say go with whichever one fits Sonny. If they all fit him, go by which one fits you :)

of course whichever fits Sonny will be the one I get....but what do you think condition wise of all? Think it would last for a while?

I'm definitely going to take out the first one first because it is cheaper...and it appears like it would fit Sonny. Cross your fingers everyone I'm going to try to convince my dad into letting me borrow it today. They give me a week trial so I'll be able to try it tomorrow!

I really like all three. They all look to be in great condition. Though I'm an English girl and know nothing about saddles hehe

They all look really nice...... I like the 1st one....I like that style of seat. I also like the 3rd.

The 3rd almost looks like a barrel saddle...

Typically a saddle built for a purpose... barrels, roping, etc... would be a stronger saddle. ANy of them look like they are in really good condition. Make sure you check the tree....

I'd say for resale the 3rd will bring you more money back if/when you go to sell it.

Sit in them and see what you think and then of course ...sonny.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
