What is This Saddle Worth?

My daughter was given this saddle years ago but she never used it. There is a little bit of scuff mark on the back of the seat. The saddle is marked Graduate Gold Star Saddlery. Since my daughter is raising funds to pay for her US delegate trip to Europe, she wants to sell the saddle and the pad.

How can I post images that are saved to my laptop. The image button above is asking for photo url. Is this a Collegiate Graduate saddle? How do I measure it so I can place an ad for it? Any idea what it is worth?

Thanks so much!

When I upload images I upload them to the site Photo and image hosting, free photo galleries, photo editing and paste the url of the image once uploaded into that box. I'm sure this site has a way to upload attachments, but I haven't had occasion to use it.

This is a pretty good guide for measuring seat size for an English saddle:

Basically, measure from the button on either side of the saddle to the center of the cantle- just like in the picture!

It's an Indian or Pakistani import, has a narrow tree, is an all-purpose saddle, and isn't worth much. $50 - $75. If someone really likes it and has a narrow horse, maybe $80 or so. No, it's not a Collegiate saddle. I found that the best way to get rid of a cheap saddle like that is to park it at a tack store or sell it at a tack swap. They have to be seen and examined, because that cheap leather can be decent (for a while) or it can be total junk and in-person inspection is required.
