This would be a great saddle to start a horse in, has a built in pad, 2 tie straps, off billet and stirrups. The stirrups go through the tree of the saddle and is VERY SECURE. It is NOT like a bareback pad, but just like an actual saddle without all the leather and all the goodies.
Would also be a great trail saddle, I really wish it fit my boy because I really like it and it bums me out that I have to sell it.
Would consider a trade for a starter type English saddle with a wide gullet 18" seat.
Asking $150 also will throw in a 24" cinch that you will need for the saddle due to the rigging.
