    Impossible to tell from those pictures and the lack of details in the ad:

    No pics showing the billets or underside. No pics taken from an angle that lets you see if it's straight or not.
    Does it have the changeable gullet system? Not all the Wintecs do. It kind of looks like the velcro closure up there at the pommel, but can't tell.
    Is it a 250, 500, or 2000?
    Since it's Craigslist, I assume it's local so you can go look at it and check out all those things in person?
    If it's in good shape and fits the horse, then the price is right for it.

    Ask the seller if they'll let you try it on your horse. When I sell saddles on Craigslist, I always hold the buyer's cash for 24-48 hours to let them try it. If they bring it back within that time in the same condition they took it in, they can get a refund.

    I really hate seeing saddles splayed out flat like that. Kind of makes me wonder how they've treated it since they've had it.

    Good Luck and you can always write down the brand and bring it home to look up info on it or even better if they will let you have it for a trial period.

    Buying over the internet with the exception of ebay sometimes, can be extremely bad for a buyer. I bought a wintec dressage saddle said to be the interchangeable gullet and it wasn't. So im stuck with a saddle I can't use that I paid way to much for and now selling so that im at the losing end but I rather it be used then sit at my house. Lesson I learned fast don't buy it unless you can touch it or return it.

    ^ Read that if you are looking at Wintecs.

    That Wintec looks like a good deal to me. It has at least the red wide if not white XW in it. Since it's so small, find out whether it's a pony model or not.
