Feeler: Any interest in a black 15" Big Horn Barrel/Trail saddle with FQHB?

I just got this saddle but sadly it is going to be a bit more snug for me than I like I ride in a 16" western but the high cantle makes this saddle fairly snug.
It has some minor damage to the top of the right fender where a cat scratched it (not my cat LOL!) but it does not affect use. It is Purely cosmetic. Otherwise it is in great shape. Fleece is nice and fluffy with no rips, tears or missing spots.

The tree is as solid as a rock and everything is in good working order. No missing parts or pieces. Comes with off billet and tie strap.

I paid $125 but will sell for $110 shipped.

Here are the specs. It is this exact saddle but in black (#101)
15" Big Horn Cordura Round Skirt Saddle 102

I haven't sold anything on this forum yet but I have an excellent rep. As a buyer/seller on another forum. Paypal preferred but will take a USPS money order.

Damage to right fender:


Left side:

I know you said it FQHB but would you be able to measure the gullet? And post a pic of it? My appy is a tough to fit horse!

Hi Rachel. I will get a photo of the measurement in the morning and post it for you. Gotta' log off for now but wanted you to know I did see your reply :)

ETA: I know what you mean about having a hard to fit horse. I have been through probably 15 saddles to find the right one for my Walker *sigh*

Tape measure slipped a bit to the left. Picture it scooched a tad to the right and it will show 7". It is hard trying to take pics with a phone and hold a tape measure lol!

I would so love this saddle but I don't have the money currently. Perhaps in a month or two if you still have it. :)

I will be glad to get more pics if anyone requests them. I realize the ones I posted aren't very detailed, plus my phone makes them a bit blurry and I can't find my regular camera

I use a Kimberley synthetic endurance saddle for my Walker and love it. I was pretty skeptical about how good the quality would be for the price, but I have to say, it is a very nice saddle. I have chronic pain and the lightness of it is perfect for me. Another reason I like the Big Horn so much.
