I haven't decided if I am going to sell this saddle or not but I wanted to see if anyone is interested. I think it is to narrow for Indy and is making him uncomfortable. Here is some information:
Original Price: $700 (I paid $700 for it, the guy I bought it from paid close to $1000 for it but sold his horse soon after and had only used it about three or four times).
I am asking between $400 and $500 ($500 would include shipping, anything lower - shipping would have to be determined) but won't turn down any reasonable offers.
I have used it about 30 or 35 times, no more then 40 I would say. I LOVE the saddle. It is very comfortable, it looks nice, it is not made of cheap leather. I have used it on other horses and I could sit in it all day. It has a few signs of use (shown in pictures below) but other than that it looks brand new.
The saddle has a Stallion Tack International brand on it, but this one was hand made/hand carved/custom designed. A lot of people have said that Stallion Tack Intl. Is a bad company with cheap saddles but this is the second saddle I have had from them. The first one lasted about 15 years (it was owned by my boss before me) and I have had no problems with this one.
I feel really dumb for not knowing this but I believe that it has semi QH bars. That was why I bought it for Indy a couple of months ago but now that I have used it and he has grown (another three inches... and many inches wider!) it just does not fit. I can't find the original bill of sale, is there any way for me to tell what type of bars it has? I feel like the angle is very narrow which would lead me to think that it is regular but... Oh boy. Sorry about that!
