    Lightbulb What would you pay?

    How much would you pay for this saddle? (Mind you I don't know the brand off hand but it is not a well known one) It is a black 17in. All-purpose English saddle. The leather is very supple. I have only used it a handful of times and the same goes for the lady I bought it from. I took great care of it and it practically looks new. It would come with the stirrups and a 50in. Neoprene(sp?) girth. I paid $300 for it.

    Ps. These pics are of when I first bought it I have cleaned it up a lot since then

    It looks like a cheap Asian import and if so, IMO, shouldn't see the back of a horse. I would pay $25 if I needed a decoration for my daughter's room, $75 max. You overpaid if you bought it for $300 (and it's a no-name saddle or other "branded" Asian import). I can get those kind of saddle new, minus fittings, for $90 from a local tack shop. Their leather is slightly more stiff looking on the flaps, but the seat and knee pad leather is the same.

    Also, black AP saddles have a very low resale value.
