Arrow ~*Wanted*~ English Saddle!!

Hello :)

I am shopping around for a nice, used English Saddle. I would like for the saddle to be a Collegiate, as those seem to fit me best. I woul also consider a Corbette. NO HDR or cheap brand saddles (Silver Fox, etc.) I don't really like HDR as in they are not comfortable, nor do they put me in a solid position. I'm open to the option for a Stubben or other type, as long as I can reasearch them, and see them as quality.

The saddle will obviously have to be used in my price range, which is an absaloute max of $600 for the *perfect* saddle. I will be showing in this saddle, so no really obvious mess ups, but something on the seat, or a scratch in the leather on the bottom isn't a big deal. I'd like to only have cosmetic issues, please. If the leather is dry, or you haven't used the saddle in a while, that's really not a big deal :) I can re-oil stuff ;)

Now for measurements! I am a 17", and Cowboy is actually pretty flexable. Right now I have him in a Medium-Wide tree with a regular saddle pad, along with a sheepskin contour pad, and that fits fine. A regular medium tree would probably do without the sheepskin, but I think a Medium-Narrow would be too small.

Thank You!! :)

I have an older collegiate, 17", plain flap and regular tree. I love riding in it, it was always one of my favorites to grab, I just have several right now that I don't use.
$200+shipping
$210+shipping and i'll attach some irons and leathers

I did an estimate from fed ex shipping and it may cost around $20 or so in shipping.

You wouldn't happen to know the model of Collegiate it is, would you? Do you have any pictures? Thanks :)

Forgot to mention, I need either an All Purpose, Close Contact, or Jump saddle :) Thanks!

Here's a link to the saddle...hopefully it works!

It hasn't been cleaned/oiled in a long time, so the rubs may or may not fade.
Also I would like to say a special thank you to my 2 yo who stood still for me the whole time!

Praise to your good little pony!!

It looks like a great little saddle :) I was looking for something with knee rolls, but with my budget I will 100% keep this in mind!!

I am new here, but have a Collegiate Parfaire saddle for sale. However, it is a 16.5" with a wide tree. Gullet is 4.75", but the panel points narrow quickly. (If that makes sense) So it is a narrowly built wide-treed saddle. Used under 15 times, just does not fit me any more. Asking $575+actual shipping (located in NorCal). If that might work for you, let me know.
