Looking for a saddle that's inexpensive not cheap? Then I may have your answer, as the saddles below offer vintage quality with a low price tag.

My prices are negotiable!!

I can ship these anywhere at your expense. PayPal preferred but money orders are ok too.

17" Candyman Close Contact - "Special Edition" model. Medium tree (I would say a touch on the narrower side, great for some of those TB types). Older, nicely balanced saddle. Pencil roll and padded flaps. Tree is solid and billets are in good condition. A few rub marks here and there, but all underneath you when you're riding. This is a great saddle, but unfortunately just too small for me. $250

15" Big Horn Western - Comfy, well made vintage saddle. Full Quarter Horse bars. Square skirted, but very short skirts, so great choice for the shorter backed horse. Solid, safe using condition. There is damage to one of the skirts, though it is cosmetic only. $250

15" Buckstitch Saddle - Really pretty, unique saddle. Older but doesn't seem to have been used much. Comfy padded suede seat. Rawhide covered wood tree. Not sure on the bar size, but it would be QH or semi-QH bars (see pics for measurements). $275

15" Vintage Saddle - This looks very much like a Bona Allen, but as it's unmarked, I can't say for sure. However, I can say that it is a very well-made, solid older saddle. This one is vintage 1950s and so a little different from modern saddles. Roomy, balanced seat. Narrower tree than you usually see now, so a super fit for those horses who are narrow and/or have no topline to speak of. Lots of room for the withers too! $300
