Talking Bighorn Barrel/Trail saddle! Bright yellow fenders.

I have this saddle that I desperately need gone. It's a Bighorn, model #101. QH bars, 15 inch seat.

It's in pretty great condition, just one small scuff on the seat (covered by a rider).

One of the fenders was apparently scratched up by a cat before I bought it but I covered both fenders with yellow cloth and the saddle now pretty much looks like it came with awesome yellow fenders. The structural integrity of the fender is totally sound, it was just cosmetic damage.

If you don't like the yellow, it would be very very easy to change the color. I could even do it for you (small additional fee for cloth), and change it to whatever color you wanted, before I sent it out.

The tree (QH bars) is sound and the fleece on the underside looks brand new.
This saddle is light, only about 15lbs.

This is a super comfy saddle. I've been trail riding in it for a couple of months and I love it. It just doesn't fit Lacey like I want and with Lacey's eye issues, I have some large vet bills to pay off. :(

I'll try to get better pictures sometime tomorrow/this weekend. I'll also try to get a gullet measurement for those who might be interested.

I'm thinking $275, shipping included (shipping will be about $30), is reasonable? OBO

Thanks for looking!

I can vouch for this saddle. It is structurally sound and a good using saddle.

Wallaby, my apologies for getting the gullet measurement wrong. I honestly thought it was FQHB but was apparently a bit off Good luck!

No worries, I was convinced that it was FQHB too until I was finally (after A LOT of looking, they really buried it! Haha) able to find it on the Bighorn website. Not your fault! :)

And thanks for vouching for it!

How hard would it be to change the fender?

Not hard at all. :) I removed them both to cover the fenders with cloth and it took maybe 5 minutes to get them out and then another probably 5 minutes to get them back in. It was very easy.

As far as replacement fenders go, these look like they'll match style-wise:

King Series Replacement Synthetic Fenders

Another thought is that replacing the yellow cloth with black cloth wouldn't be very hard and it'd be cheaper than replacing the whole fender... :)

I still have this saddle and it still wants a new told me today that the mice in my tack room are calling it names an making it sad. It just wants to be loved, poor baby!

Also, for interested parties, if desired, I could definitely cover the fenders in black cloth for you. It would end up looking like your everyday black Bighorn! :)

I just wanted to also say that I have ridden in this brand and style of saddle with my horse and it was very comfy! would make a great trail saddle..especially for those who are starting out and it's lightweight so you don't have to feel bad about putting loads of weight on your horses back..especially if it has a sensitive back like my horse.

Wallaby,if I was just doing trails I would buy this saddle and I actually like the fenders :P.....maybe you can put different cloth on if someone wants purple or teal?

Oh yes, I could cover them in whatever color(s) someone wanted! It could be super super cool.

And thanks for the vote of quality! I appreciate it! :)

Forgot to mention in my other most recent post, I've dropped the price down to $250 but I'm still open to reasonable offers.
I might also be open to the idea of some kind of payment plan if needed... :)

What is the gullet width? Do you think it would fit a really fat horse with semi-high withers and a curvy back? Lol
