WTB-17 Circle Y or Billy Cook saddle

I am looking for a 17 inch Circle Y or Billy Cook FQHB western saddle. Would like it to have a breast collar as well. Don't need anything new. I would like a nice worn in one but still in great shape. Need it for daily riding and trail so comfortable seat is a plus. Don't need anything showy. Let me know what you got. Thanks.

So - here is my saddle.... I don't have the mating breast collar - but do have one I could add to the deal.

This saddle is my absolute favorite, but no longer fits my gaited horse. It looks great, feels great, and rides great.

It is a Circle Y Park and Trail. According to the serial number
Model: 3607
Tree: Semi-Quarter Horse
Seat: 17"
Color: Dark Oil antique
Made: March 2003

I bought this saddle new and have loved every ride on it. It is in used condition. I have put at least 1000 miles on this saddle including trails, and my daughter showed 4H with it. There is normal wear and tear on the leather, but not excessive. There are a few scratches on the fenders from my daughter's belt buckle. All of the leather is soft and supple. It has always been well care for and kept well oiled.

The two small (1/4 inch) D-rings in front of the swell on the tie strap holders have lost thier chrome and are a bit rusty. There is no other rust on this saddle.

It has three way rigging so you can choose between front, 7/8, or 3/4 positions. The original nylon latigos are a bit stretched, but still have many many years of life - you can see where my horse gets chiched up to.

Beautiful floral tooling. The fleece is in great shape.

This is a quality saddle that will last for decades of hard use with just basic care.

I am asking $600 for this saddle, Firm on price.

I will allow you to try it on your horse before you buy it. (I am also open to a trade of a like quality saddle with a gaited tree)
