Where are you located? I have a western saddle that is not the prettiest thing on the planet but could be used. It's basically my breaking saddle that I didn't care if it hit the dirt or not. I have NO intension of breaking any more horses. It still has a good tree and would be great for a knock around starter.
Let me know where you are located. And we can talk about shipping and so on and so forth.
Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
1 Chronicles 28:20
