Did you get this saddle? That is a great price even for an older Tucker in good shape. You also may try Ebay
, they often have endurance for decent prices, also TackTrader.com. Just type Tucker into their search area and all the Tuckers for sale will come up.
For a saddle pad I use an Imus 4 beat pad. They cost 69.95 or so at National Bridle Shop online. They have a Tacky back which helps keep the saddle straight and also allow the horses sweat to move out from under the pad. Reinsman also makes a round skirt just like it called their Tacky Too in a round skirt. If I remember correctly they are more expensive.
