Very nice! I love the old saddles too. I just bought an older Stubben Parzival (sp?) for my daughter and it's great! Some surface cracking on the top leather, but otherwise in perfect condition. I got it for $300 and that included shipping.

I like brown Dressage saddles too. I think they look more classy .

That is a very pretty saddle. I just bought a 120 year old western saddle that has new leather underneath so it can still be used. I'm an old cowboy at heart, so I love this new saddle.

If I were not so old and dumb about computers I would show you a picture, but I tried everything I know.

I also like brown dressage saddles. I saw a brand new Stubben at the tack store the other day and it just stood out among the black ones. Nice deal, congrats!
