    Looking for

    Hey guys, I am looking for a saddle for my sisters horse.
    It can be either dressage or close contact, which ever we find that will work first is what we will buy.
    17.5-18" seat, medium or mediumwide tree.
    I want a good quality used saddle, I don't want crap.
    Looking to pay up to $600- maybe a bit more.

    ALSO looking for a dressage saddle for my other horse..
    18" seat, wide or mediumwide tree.
    Good quality.
    Just let me know what you have.
    Thanks ;)

    I have a custom dressage saddle I had made to spec so it's not a name brand but very decent quality. I had to have the billets replaced because my dog mangled then at one point and they are a cheaper leather with nylon backing. They are very functional and you can't see them but the leather veneer is cracking. It would be an easy/cheap fix if it bothered you though.It's a Medium-wide or wide tree I forget the measurements and I fit it to my horse. It fit my chunky QH and most draft types I've ever put it on. The wither clearance is low though so it does best with horses that are lacking in the withers department or are very flat and broad. However I did pad it with a lift pad on my TB once that takes a medium and it had very even sweat patterns and no rubs or pressure points. It is an 18" seat. It comes with black wintec leathers, no irons, and if it's a deal maker/breaker I could throw in a wintec 30" dressage girth as well. The saddle is leather, black and has a little bit of wear where the leathers go but it is well broken in. Kept in the trailer with a cover and faithfully conditioned and cleaned as well as gently used. Let me know if you're interested and I could email you some pics of it. I am asking $250 obo. Thanks!

    Thanks but I'm not really looking to buy something that I don't know the exact brand of.. and both of the horses have pretty high withers.
    Thanks though.

    I have a black, used Theo Sommer saddle for sale. It is used, but these saddles range well over the $1,000 mark new, and there's a lot of life left in it, well-cared for and in good condition. I wouldn't sell it, but I have a saddle that suits me better. It is an AP, so not specifically what you're looking for, but I evented in it. I rode my dressage test with longer stirrups, and it's also good for jumping, especially for cross-country, because it's really secure and has a medium-deep seat. I measured the seat and got nearly 18", more like 17 and 3/4" really. It's at least a medium-wide, because it's too wide for my horse [I can measure when I get home, I've done it four times already but I just keep forgetting =/] . With an extra riser pad for width it had good wither clearance for him, and his withers are more like a TB than the typical breeding-stock paint's withers, which is what he is. Let me know if you're interested in some pictures! =]
