LOL well let me know if you are interested in mine ;) There's a FS ad for it on the forum.

Ooh, alrighty then! Thank you very much. Chances are, if this saddle fits, I'll purchase yours. :)

That saddle looks comfortable as hell. What brand is it?

EDIT: Nevermind, found your ad. :P

Omg, you have no idea how comfy it is. And this one is very well maintained. Right now its perch is on the banister between the kitchen and the living room! PS I'm glad you found the ad otherwise I would have forgotten that I reduced it to $175 LOL I feel so deceitful.

$200 isn't bad anyway. I'd scoop it up now, but I really need to sell my saddle and make some money first. :P
I'm shopping right now, but expect to hear from me again if you still have it when I get the cash (which hopefully won't take too long).

I have mixed feelings about treeless. First of all, I personally prefer the tree for the better weight distribution. The cheap ones are complete junk from what I've heard. Good ones are really pricey even used + you'll need a special pad (that is also costly). Also you have to be really well balanced to ride in one, it may slip, issues if horse bucks, etc.

I'd say look into used treed one - will be much cheaper and easier on you.

I've heard more people say that, if you buy a good saddle (which I think I found some, pricey indeed), it'll never slip. Y'know, versus those who say it's bad and hurts the back and such.

Anyway, I might have found a saddle thanks to Equilove. Now I just need to hurry up and have money before it sells. XD

Many online stores have consignment (used) saddles that you can have a trial period on, and send back if they do not fit.

Usedsaddles.com
Stcroixsaddlery.com
Pelham-saddlery.com
Bcsaddlery.com
Marystack.com
Olson Mills Saddlery
Trumble Mountain

Are just a few off the top of my head!
