Saddle advice for a novice buyer.

Hi, just wondering if this saddle looks right to y'all? Considering buying it as it's very cheap. Not needed for excessive riding, just for mucking around on a pony. It was suggested that it's be okay for lead line but not hard work. Opinions? Do I spent the $20 or pass?

Thanks in advance.

Pass....please pass!!!!!!!

There is something wrong with it...
Look at your 2nd the stuffed panels....
3rd picture...where the rear crupper is is not aligned with the pommel...

The saddle is wracked, twisted, warped...
Please, please do not buy and ever put it on a horse or pony if you care at all for the animal.
If this has what I suspect...the damage inflicted could be major.

Best $20 would be to buy it and destroy it so never again could it threaten a animal with it being strapped on...
boots and unclearthur like this.

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

I'm not seeing any pictures. Looks like they didn't come through

Always stay humble and kind

Thank you so much! Yeah, I thought the 2nd pic looked a bit odd which is why I decided to ask. I couldn't tell if it was because it was on a railing but not positioned well, but I'll definitely pass on it. Cheers!

Glad you passed on it. It looks like a horse rolled on it or it had some other horrible mishap - yikes!
