What type of saddle is this? What is it worth?

So, I was given this saddle:

english saddle | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Yes, that is the only picture I have of it right now, I will try to get more.
I don't like it, it is flat with forward flaps. I was thinking it was some type of saddle seat/cutback saddle?

There is no cracking, cuts or anything, just normal wear and tear. Someone told me it was a very old jumping saddle that resembles stubben and other popular brands? I do not think there is a brand stamped on it anywhere.

I am thinking of selling it, because it is not my style. Should I try to sell it? It is worth anything? Or should I just toss it out? Either way I won't be continuing riding with it.

The tree appears to be in good condition, in tact, not broken but kind of hard and packed? From years of use?

I am really just looking for some information on this saddle, and how I should market it if I chose to do so.

Thanks!

It looks like an old CC saddle. The flaps actually don't look very forward in the picture, at least not to me.

It may be an oldstyle jumping saddle, or it may be a saddleseat saddle. Used on gaited horses.
Anyone?

I looks like a very old polo or military style saddle. Nothing like I've seen for gaited horses.

I get a different answer from everyone XD lol!

No one wants a saddle like this though, everyone wants the nice, round, hold-you-in type of saddles. You have to naturally be a pretty darn good rider to ride in this saddle.

I ride WP and am starting to get into some gaming. I wanted to learn english when I got this saddle, but ... I don't know.

It is not a gaited saddle.
It is an old style field hunt/polo saddle. I grew up with one just like it but much smaller. No knee roll at all. Other than the fact that there is almost no flocking left in the back, it looks still serviceable. It will do nothing to help your position, so you will actually learn better skills, as long as you get a pad to shim up the back of the saddle to make the seat level.

They still use a similar style in polo to this day. It allows the rider to completely change their position all over without the saddle interfering.



I would bet the saddle is no newer than the 50's.

So does anyone know what this saddle would be worth if I chose to sell it? Would the old age add the the value or subtract it? I just don't think anyone would want to buy something like this.
