Erin you are a doll for being so brave and posting pics etc.I am a new rider again, and I am constantly worrying about my weight too.Hubby got the big qh and I found a loving 15h 7y.o. appy.Last month when we had the vet out he said he weighed 950, needs to put on 50-70# which I have worked on since I got him on 7/12.He was ribby when I got him, but now I cant feel them.Anyways he handles me fine and Im a big girl and always working on the weight loss. We've had both horses on many trail rides and mine is kinda sluggish going up hill w/ me but he does do it. Bless his skinny butt. :P
I hope you find the right saddle and continue to enjoy your horse.

Nice saddle for a decent price. That is a reining saddle or show style saddle that is well broken in. The leather looks good from the pics but I'm surprised the stirrups are not turned (but you can do that yourself). That style saddle is great for a typical ride but the shape of the cantle is not really conducive for long trail ride although a lot of riders like them.

Because it is well used, I would ask to see a pic of the bottom and I would like to know the gullet width. If it doesn't sell, and you like it, I would be tempted to offer the seller a lower amount.

I've contacted sellers before and asked if they would end the auction early for $XXXX.XX. Many times they say no but I've gotten a few good buys that way, especially if there have been no bids - but sometimes that brings up the question as to Why are there no bids.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

The ebay saddles all sound so nice but what about returns? Be very careful about buying a saddle on ebay.. Not saying that you can't get a good buy but chances are ????


There are a couple of places that I would recommend.

Here is one, great seller who understands todays costs (payments) and refunds! New and used saddles avail.:
http://www.holtzsaddleco.com/Western...212/index.html


and this seller on Ebay is AWESOME! She will get whatever size you need. Very nice to deal with and great prices too. (check out the circle y's she has) She only deals in circle y and tex tan. This is a link to her items for sale.
