If I was in the market for anouther saddle I would really look hard at this one. Price is really good at this point.

If that saddle sell for less then $2K it will still be a good deal. Even if you have to pay a couple hundred on shipping.

It costs 150$ to ship to France. I'm going to follow it and see if I can get a bargain :) Its gone up to 610$ with 1 day left. If near the end its at around 1500$ or a bit more i'm going to try and get it. I'll keep you posted.

It should make you a nice saddle. Looks like it is in good shape and it is an older bobs so it is hand made. There are certain older saddle I really like and the bobs are one of them. Cleborns are anouther. You just have to watch the makers marks on the Cleborns as there are 2 different ones. however both are really nice saddles.

My trainer has one. Not sure how old it is. It is nice. The only thing that I have found that I do not like about Bobs saddles is that some of them tend to be wide in the seat. However you do not know until you sit in them

Ok, so I have decided against the Bob's saddle but I still need all of your help. I have found a really nice looking 16" smooth seat Mcclellands Saddlery Silver Show Reiner but I don't know anything about Mcclellands saddles. Please help.
