WANTED: 15-16" Western saddle

Hello everyone, I have been on the hunt for a western saddle for myself and my TB for about a year now! I figure I will post here and see what turns up....

I'm idealy looking for a relatively lightweight (for my TB's sake) leather saddle. Semi-quarter bars, or a 6.5" gullet. I will also consider a 6.75", if I reeeally like it I will just pad up a bit. Must accomodate high withers. Preferably round skirt or no skirt, and I would love an nice deep seat with padding. I am a trail rider, so a really comfy seat is a must. No preference on color, but I do prefer the look of darker saddles. No make or model in mind, just a reasonably priced (so well used), if I have to put a bit of elbow grease in and/or make small repairs, that's fine. I don't really have any budget for a saddle right now, but I do have for sale/trade an 18" Flex rider A/P saddle in very good condition if a trade or partial trade is acceptable on your end. Will send pics of the saddle for people who are interested in purchasing or trading.

SO, if you have anything or know of anything, feel free to post here or PM me!

I have a 17 inch abetta western saddle that fits my TB really well, that I'd trade for the right A/P saddle. It rides like a 16 inch, the skirt is square but fits my midget backed mare well. Can you send me pics of your saddle, and I'll send you a pic of mine? My mare has withers, it's got good clearance

I have Alamo for sale: Western saddle (with extras) for sale

It's around 28 lbs (light for the leather saddle) and with good clearance on front (was a good fit for my high withers paint). You can see saddle on paint in pics under my profile.

Please see my ad for the vintage hereford saddle above. It is a show saddle but in a western style, its a darker color and seems to have a very padded seat. If you are interested and need certain measurements just let me know where to measure it.

Thanks,
Brett

@kitten val....that saddle looks kind of perfect, except the gullet I'm almost positive is too wide. Your paint kinda looks like a tabletop, I have something like a rooftop lmao. I am going to stalk it though, may send you a pm in the future of his wither/back tracing to see how it matches up.

@Fastmerc unfortunately I have no budget or need for a show saddle. Trail rider only haha, it would be a waste for me to snatch it up when someone else might use it!

I have a 15"-16" western trail saddle,pretty tooling,branded "G" w/a serial number (?), it was my grandpa's. I was going to buy it,but really hate riding western so I know I probably won't ever end up using it...lol. I would sell it for $175 including shipping (which usually ends up being $35-$50) and it comes with saddle bags,water bottle clip on holder,and a 36" Tuffy neoprene cinch. It has all new custom latigos. I also have a brand-new western bridle set-up I would sell for an extra $25 if it is shipped with the saddle :) It isn't a "show" saddle or super fancy,but it is in good shape and isn't too heavy. Let me know if you want pics :)
