I actually am not against used saddles (that's mostly what I have so i still get the brand and quality).Why not to look into used one of good brand instead? I do understand the new stuff looks nice and shiny, but those starter packages are usually piece of junk, sorry.
I'd say keep looking on tacktrader, ebay, craigslist and horseclicks. And here as well. Yes, I definitely have seen the used full package (may be even on this forum).Do you have any suggestions for used saddles (full saddle - ie. stirrups leathers, saddle, etc.) under $350.00
Agreed. If you were closer I'd sell you my 15 yo 17" cheaply made but super comfortably worn in English all-purpose. It needs new billets and a few stitches here or there--it will travel to the Amish saddle shop next month, along with some other saddles. I just can't give it up. It's very hard for me to ride/break in my new English saddles bc I know how great THIS one feels, but I don't want to do any more damage on it, so it sits in tack room, sigh, waiting for love.You could do a lot better getting a used saddle, and it would likely not cost you as much.
