Question Crosby Dressage Saddle?

I am thinking of buying this saddle?

Black Crosby dressage saddle - Edmonton Sports Goods For Sale - Kijiji Edmonton Canada.

Is it a good saddle?

Crosby makes a good quality product. I had an old Crosby that I loved, but it had the hardest thigh rolls, it would hurt my knees. That one looks good. Kind of expensive, but I don't know what they go for. I'd look aroud a bit more , or offer them a bit less.

I won the exact same saddle on ebay a few months ago and LOVE it. I think mine might be slightly older but it looks just like the one in your picture. I can't quite tell if yours is black or brown. Mine is brown which is one of the reasons I bought it. I know, a little odd for dressage but I like it. I won mine for 299 so like the previous person said, maybe a little high, but it is definitely a good saddle. It took a little bit of digging for me to find a three buckle dressage girth, but I finally did find one.

Very nice saddle. I didn't see where it said what seat size and what width, though. THAT makes all the difference in the world.

I e-mailed the owner and they said it was a 16.5 and black. Would a 16.5 be too small for me? I have a 17.5 AP saddle and I find it wayy to big! I'll post some pics to show you. And what should I offer?

How tall are you? Are you thin or not? 16.5 is pretty small.

Here are some pics. The saddle I am riding in is 17.5.. It looks okay but I have a whole hand width infront and in back, that's why I think its too big.. Also it puts me in a bad postion...

Actually mine is also a 16.5 and I'm 5'11" and 125 lbs. It fits me perfectly. I had to buy myself some 60" stirrup leathers but obviously that's where you and I differ. LOL! But going by your pictures as well as your measurements, a 16.5 would work just fine for you. It's funny how similar our situations are. I too have a 17.5 all purpose Stubben and it's slightly too big for me but it doesn't seem quite as big as yours. Yours is definitely a little on the bigger side for you. I would offer maybe $600 or so for yours. It definitely seems a little newer than mine and it's a soft ride which mine isn't. And yours includes the 3 buckle girth which I had to buy extra. But I checked ebay for Crosby softride dressage saddles and $600 seemed to be the range they're going for. Maybe they'll kind of meet you in the middle. I'm attaching a pic of mine as a comparison. Like I said, I won it for 299 on ebay. Keep us posted on your decision.
