I need room in my "tack room" and some money to upgrade a couple of things around the house.
17" Australian Saddle by Kimberley (Down Under Saddle Supply)
Leather, medium tree at 6" gullet (adjustable -- must send to manufacturer with wither tracings)
This was my first saddle -- I got it with my gelding. However, he's nineteen now, and I'm twenty, so we've both grown out of it. There are a few scuff marks from use, and one of the front D-rings is missing, but it's in otherwise excellent condition. It is solid and has many, many years of use left in it. The model is older, but it's closest to the "Superior" they sell today.
I'm asking $350.
17" Western Saddle by Abetta
Black, synthetic, wide FQHB -- 8" gullet (has been on a draft)
I've had this saddle for about three years. It's not missing anything on it -- the only difference is I switched out the cinch billet for a shorter one, since the one that came with it was collossal, (I can include and ship both, though.) This fit best on a large halter-bred paint mare with a set of wide shoulders and back. Very comfortable, very light -- I just need something that fits my mare better.
Asking $300, but reasonable offers are definitely considered.
17.5" AP English Saddle by Maxam (Thorowgood)
Dark brown, synthetic, medium tree (6" gullet)
I got this for my gelding when I was fourteen, so again, we've both grown out of it. It's held up fairly well for the quality and all the use that's been put into it. There's some cosmetic damage, but it's still in riding condition. However, one of the stirrup bars (it's a safety type) has a loose screw on the "safety" part. I'm pretty sure it's an easy fix, but I'd rather let a new owner tinker with it how they like. It's very soft and comfortable. I'll include my 48" Wintec elastic girth with it as well, and the synthetic leathers and irons come with it.

We can work out shipping prices, and I accept paypal!
