Cool My first show saddle!

Well after looking for a while I have finally bought my first show saddle. I bought it on eBay.

here is sellers description:

GORGEOUS 16" smooth seat Mcclellands Saddlery Silver Show Reiner. Gorgeous deep tooling, hard to find square skirts, loaded with silver. Generous Full QH Bars fits every horse i have put it on. Even my super WIDE reining stallion. Super comfortable. The silver on the cantle is missing the piece in the very center. It does NOT show from a distance or on the ground, and a new piece could be ordered from Mclellands in Florida. This saddle has gotten so many compliments. The quality is up there with Bobs, Jim Taylor, Phil Harris, silver mesa, or Blue Ribbon. WAY NICER than any circle y, crates, billy royal or tex tan out there! Always stored bagged. I am only selling it because I am just not showing anymore. This is an AWESOME saddle!

I can't wait to have it at home, i'm so exited!

Here are some photos.

Looks like a nice saddle. Hope you have years of enjoyment with it.

Very nice! Make sure you give it a nice shine when you get it home. (You probably already knew that. lol) It should last a long time. Congrats.

I don't know anything about western riding or western tack, but that is such a unique looking and pretty saddle to me, looks like it was an awesome find :)
