Budget AP Saddle 16.5

I rode in this saddle for a few years. It's 16.5 seat and medium tree. All purpose... deeper type seat.
I don't know anything about the saddle. My ex husband bought it for me from a lady in Texas who was using it for polo.
This is NOT a high quality saddle, but works well for basic english riding and as a beginner saddle on a budget!
All leather (not synthetic). No damage. Tree is in tact and has never been worked on in any way. Sorry, no leathers or irons included.

Asking $50
Plus shipping (US only)

Gee, that's a good deal for someone. Too small for me and I don't need, but there have been so many young girls buying crappy starter sets and this one looks like it is a good step upfrom that.
Come on girls, go for it!

hmm it may work! I just need to get this one sold so i'll have the money! Mine is 13 across and 15 down. So it's just a TEENSY bit smaller but it could work. I'll definitely get it and try. It's not one of those cheaply made ones though is it? It looks super nice but last time I was scammed(not saying your a scammer) just wanna cover the bases properly this time! Lol

well... if I hadn't bought a BEAUTIFUL new saddle from one of the lovely ladies on this forum, then i'd still be riding in this AP saddle. I've jumped everything from the little 2'6" all the way up to 3'9" in this very saddle. It's no Antares by any means... but it's functional, clean, solid, and an enjoyable saddle to ride in.

Could you measure the gullet of the first saddle for me? I'm very interested in it. And could you maybe take a picture of the underside of the saddle as well?
Thank you! Sorry to be so picky!

Oh! Oops. I must have missed that. I'll have to measure Lacey's saddle's tree and get back to you then. :)
