Collegiate Saddle For Sale!

So I am selling my AP Collegiate saddle, since it isn't wide enough for my two mares.

The saddle style is a Collegiate Alumnus All Purpose Saddle. It was made when Collegiates were sold by Millers and made by Ruiz Diaz -- the "RD" under the logo by the stirrup bar--who is apparently the designer of the original Pessoas. It has a 17 and 1/2 seat and a medium sized tree. Billets are in great condition.



Other than general wear, the saddle only has a couple of cosmetic flaws. The seat has a wrinkle in the middle, and the pommel binding is a little torn. Just to be sure of the tree's soundness from the wrinkle, I had the saddle tree checked by a respected tack store. They said that the saddle was completely fine and that the wrinkle was just from use. The pommel binding is also just a cosmetic issue.

With the saddle, I have included a pair of HDR stirrup leathers that I bought from Dover this spring. They are in great shape and were $69 new. Here they are from the website: http://www.doversaddlery.com/hdr-sti...1-06847/cn/90/

The stirrup irons are pretty nice shape as well. I don't know what brand they are though, since they came with the saddle when I bought it.

Anyway, this is a great saddle, and I am really bummed to have to let it go. If I had a horse that it would fit, I would keep it in a second!


Here are some pictures:





Model Number(?--ART 6534) and Seat Size (17 1/2):

I'm curious for prospective buyers' sakes, is the tree broken? The saddle seems to have a bubble of leather in the seat.

The tree is fine. See original post:

The saddle came with the wrinkle when I bought it off of ebay, and the old seller said the tree was fine then too.


I wouldn't mind doing a 7-day trial period to make sure it fits the buyers horse. If it doesn't end up fitting, the buyer just pays for the shipping. If it does fit I'll pay for the shipping, and the buyer just pays for the saddle.

I am very, very interested- I have a collegiate CC right now, and I simply do not like the way I fit in it. I would really love to try this out, but I have to sell my collegiate before I can even think about trying anything else out. Where are you located?
How much would shipping be to send to Michigan? [Not sure if it would fit- the tree may be too narrow.]
