What do you all think about this saddle??

So I found this saddle for sale and I like it! But I have a couple of concerns...do you all think the tree looks like a wide or medium one? Also I am six foot tall and do you all think the flaps would be long enough??
It is a 19" Olympic....

It is definitely quite used and I think it is a wide tree. Could you ask the seller what it is? I think the flaps should be long enough.

Yes it is a used saddle, I wanted one that was broken in...:) I emailed the seller but she has not emailed me back yet. From the picture I would agree that the tree looks wide. Thanks for the help

19" saddles generally have long flaps. It should be fine for you there. I prefer used saddles myself. As long as your horse is pretty wide, it should be good for you.
