The saddle shows normal wear and dings. It had some mold from storage, but has been cleaned and conditioned thoroughly, with only some very minor tiny raised "dots" from the mold in a few places. It's not noticable and does not effect the integrity of the saddle. The off billet and latigo are the original nylon from Circle Y, both in good shape. The only thing missing from the saddle are the stirrup hobbles, and I have a set I can put on that are a simlar color (more of medium oil, but I can oil them darker).
I used Lexol cleaner and Passier Lederbalsam conditioner to clean and condition the saddle. The fenders are a little more dry than the rest of the saddle, so they look a bit lighter right now. I will add another coat of conditioner to the fenders, and that should even things out. The photos make the fenders look lighter than they are. It's barely noticable in person.
I'm looking to get $475 for this saddle, plus actual shipping. I take Paypal, credit card, or money order only. I can calculate shipping once I have a box that will fit the saddle.
The only trades I would consider is for an 18-19" Stubben Dressage saddle with a 30-31cm tree, or for a western saddle that is a quality name brand, 16-16.5" seat, QHB or FQHB tree, with skirts 25" or less (total saddle length, front to back), round skirt or square, any color.
I might consider a partial trade for a 13" youth western saddle, FQHB, quality made.
Mouse damage to the Circle Y branded carrier, not as noticable in person (flash accentuated it).
