I bought one last summer just to have as an extra saddle. It was like new and my tack shop had it on consignment, I ended up getting it for $80. I bought it, then sold it at the end of the summer on ebay for $130.00. $275 sounds a little high.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I'm thinking about going for it, I need to practice a lot before I invest in a more expensive saddle and for the price and condition will serve me well for what I am using it for =)
I'd try to negotiate lower personally.

Thank you so much for the input everyone. There is a store in my town that has used and new saddles, I'm going to ask them what they think and I really don't want to pay that price. He told me he was really bad at selling stuff and is a nice guy, I just don't think he realizes that he is asking a lot for it, going to get my facts from the store and have a little chat with him about it.
