Good price for this saddle?

**Didn't know whether or not to put this in the tack section because its not discussing how to use it. So when in doubt put it in the talk section. **

I've been looking for a western show saddle that would fit my Morab mare for a while now, and today I found this saddle in the consignment part of my local tack shop. Its a Circle Y that the woman had custom made for her Arabians. She's only used it a handful of times, and is moving to Texas so she's cleaning out her tack room for the long trip down. It comes with the matching bridle, reins, and breastplate. She's asking $1200 for it and I was wondering if that's a good price or not? I'm not very good at pricing, but I think its a good deal.

The pictures were taken with my phone so bare with me. Lol. I'll be getting better ones in the next day or so (the set is currently in my car on trial) on my mare with an actual camera.














It's something you need almost like air or water. ♥

A Circle Y, practically brand new. As a set? Ha, its a steal! Like, a major bargain! (As long as it fits your horse of course)

A set like that could go $2500-$3000. When I looked at barrel saddles, the Circle Ys were $2000 and up.

It's shiny!

Why can't English tack come in shiny?

If its selling price is over $2000, its in good nick and it fits I'd definitely go ahead.

So this sort of tack, do western people use it everyday or just for special occasions?

That's what I thought, but wanted to make sure. Lol. I told the store owner that I was taking it home with me to try on my horse, but mostly so no one can steal it from me.

I know! The most "bling" english has is browbands.. and even then you buy the blingy browband seperatley. >:(

Most people around here have every day tack and then show/parade tack.

That way your shiny expensive tack lasts longer.. I treat my "show" tack like a baby.

I found one that looks like it and without the bridle and all it is around $3,000. If it is in good shape, it is a good deal.
