Royal King western trail saddle 17" w/auto adjust flextree & bridle/breastcollar

I bought this item brand new for my haflinger gelding because I thought the flex tree would be a good fit for his back. The saddle came with instructions to waterproof before using. Well I did…before trying it of my horse. The saddle was too big and now I can’t return it, soooo…lesson learned, and now I need to sell it. I need to get a saddle that does fit, asap, even if I have to lose money on this one. So you can benefit from my mistake! The offer comes with the saddle (of course), back billets (the left billet has a knife/pick holder) and rear cinch, a rope girth, a bridle with reins, a breastcollar, and a brown tough 1 saddle carrier to put it all in! I called the company and had them order me the exact bridle/breastcollar match for the saddle, So this is the whole set. It’s all been waterproofed and is ready to go! All you need is a saddle blanket and a bit! The whole set has never been used, my horse didn’t even leave the stall with them on. The only exception is that the saddle carrier is a little dusty (the stuff inside is not) which I will take care of before shipping it to you. The saddle has also been properly stored on a metal western saddle stand, so there is no improper bends in the saddle leather/tree. The whole set is a beautiful dark cherry oak color with basket weave tooling on every item. I'd like about $850.00 for everything, though feel free to make an offer. The shipping would be on me. I might also be willing to trade for a 17" (or big 16") wide tree western saddle that would fit my haflinger. Also considering synthetic saddles. I want something light. No barrel-racing saddles though, I don't like their seat position. Only pleasure/trail...anyway...

This addle is also on ebay, if you would like to bid or buy through that site, as it would be more secure...

Do you think that this woudl fit a gaited, long backed 1/2 Saddlebred?

Would you be interested in trading for a 17" Circle Y Park and Tail saddle? I won't have pics until tomorrow... but full QH bars, dark oil, a couple scratches from my daughter's belt as she dismounted, but otherwise in great condition. But it is too tight at the shoulders for my gaited horse...

I should think it would fit a gaited horse just fine...
