German Made Saddles and a Stubben (pics added)
 
Do these types of saddles, as far as English goes, tend to be good saddles? There is a gently used one for sale for 325.

There is also a used Stubben for 150... which shocked me. Should I be weary?

EDIT
here is a pic of the "Stubben"

and a pic of the one for 325, German made "Crump Prix De Saute"

I like the looks of both, however I'm a Stubben fanatic... I'd try them both and figure out which one fits you and the horse better. :D good luck!

they look like nice saddles so i would try them but the first one looks like it has a very narrow gullet

I am completely in love with my stubben! They both look lovely, I wouldn't be shocked on the price of the stubben, it looks older but those saddles last FOREVER!
Definately try both of them on, I tried 18 on Flynn before finding a good fit.

CWDs are also good

I can't see the pictures, but I have a Stubben and love it. Mine is 50+ years old, and is still in perfect condition, even though I found it in someones barn covered in mildew and ignored for about ten years. They are made out of fantastic leather, with good quality work, and last forever. I highly recommend them.
