Story aside, here's the saddle:
17.5 inch, medium tree. Made by Thoroughbred Saddlery. This saddle is estimated to be about 25 years old, but has been well taken care of. This is the most comfortable saddle I have ever ridden in. The only "problem" with this saddle is that one of the billets has extra holes punched in it, but the billet is sound.
This saddle is currently at the saddle fitter waiting to get larger knee blocks put on it (it has pencil knee rolls right now), if you are remotely interested and don't want the larger knee blocks please speak up now!!
sorry best picture I have of how big the knee blocks are currently.
Asking $400 plus shipping. May trade for a collegiate senior event!
