For sale: 1968 Big Horn saddle [bright red seat!]

Sadly, I am having to sell my favorite-est saddle ever. :(

It's super comfy. I have never been sore after riding in it. It has an equitation style seat so it helps you get into the correct position right off the bat - no reminding yourself to keep your legs under you because this saddle makes it the most comfy place for them to be!

It's well oiled and I will clean it extra good before I send it out.

The seat is 15 inches, it has a 7 inch (I think) gullet, SemiQH Bars, and an older A-frame style tree.
I've had it on TB's and narrow ponies and it fit great.
The front half has also fit great on my wide shouldered Polish bred Arab (aka "Wide Cow"), it's just that the angle of the back half is all wrong for her. So if you have a narrow backed Arab (maybe Egyptian bred?), this might be the saddle for you. It might fit gaited horses well too. I'm not sure though.
Basically, this saddle should fit well on pretty much anything with wide shoulders, a steep shoulder angle, and a narrow back.

It will come with a cinch and stirrup keepers.

I'm asking $220 shipped (shipping will probably cost $40ish dollars).

I'm also open to trades for a child's saddle (a 12 inch seat would be good) with QH bars, but I would only accept trades from established forum members and/or people with a stellar seller rating thing. If you go this route, I don't need a pretty child's saddle, it just has to have some use left in it.

Paypal is preferred but other payment methods are accepted.

Thanks!


Also, these pictures aren't the best. I can get better ones if a very interested party would like.

I hope you sell this. I have always loved your saddle. Gotta love red! It reminds me of my mom's parade saddle :)

Thanks Gidget! I love it too. :)

Also, I don't want to trade for a kid's saddle anymore. I was actually given one by some older people I know. Well, loaned but when I asked about bringing it back to them they said "We'll call you, we'll probably never need it back"... so...Yay! Haha

But, I'm still open to offers and I'm willing to trade if you have something I need. It is unknown what I need, but if you want to trade, shoot me a pm and maybe I need it. Haha

Anyway:

BUMP!!!!

I had a saddle like this in the 70's only it was more all purphase and had a 16' seat. Don't know the make but it looks like your Big Horn. My Quarter horse has an average back and rather narrow around the withers. If it has at least a 6-7 inch gullet, it should fit him. What would you take for the saddle?

Yep! Shipping is free. :)

I think it has a 7 inch gullet, not entirely sure but I can measure it later this afternoon and let you know. :)
I'd like to get $220 for this saddle.

Hmmm. If only I had a horse to fit this saddle, I'd snap it up! Unfortunately just about anything I ride is some sort of stock horse. Darned QHs and their as you put it; 'wide cow' bodies ;)

Well....you know that TB your barn got? Maybe he really "needs" a new saddle??

Also, jeaeschliman, the gullet -from front concho to front conch- is 7 inches. :)

XDD he does, actually. Without knowing for sure that it would fit him though, I really don't see them going for it. And he's such a hard fit...he gives me a headache. I've heard the term 'TB withers' but my gosh are his high ._. Seems like no matter what saddle (we have almost 20 to choose from) I use, it doesn't fit somewhere!

I might just have to make up a reason to need that saddle though. It's absolutely gorgeous, even if it is a tad big for me xD
