Paid over $400 for set and tack is still in excellent condition. It was purchased new from State Line Tack; I am the only owner. The saddle is not even broken in yet as it has only been ridden in a few times since the mare I used it for passed. I bought an Aussie saddle for my others which I prefer over English.
This English Saddle is a Black 17" Thorowgood Synthetic All-Purpose Saddle that was exclusive at the time to State Line Tack.... (read more) I believe now Dover sells them in the USA.
The saddle has removable/adjustable knee blocks. Also included are matching 54" Black Synthetic Stirrup Leathers. I bought 5" Korsteel Flex II Stirrups to go with it; they flex to a perfect 70 degree angle. I am also including the Fox Mountain Double Fleece AP Saddle Pad and a Dark Brown Kincade Plain Raised Bridle w/ Laced Reins with attached Full Cheek Snaffle Bit. Supposed to have semi-QH bars on it to fit a wide range of horses. Measurements are as follows: Seat Sz is 17" meas. from the button by pommel to the center of cantle; Tree Sz is 31 cm. meas. from the bottom of tree points across making this a Wide Tree; Gullet Width (kinda hard to measure with the padding) is 3.5-4" front, 2.5-3" center, 2" back (I can fit 3 fingers in gullet at rear of the saddle.) Front Gullet from seam - seam is 7" across.

Thanks for looking. Serious inquiries only please. Price is firm. I can ship anywhere in the USA, and possibly international. To ship within the continental US is around $30 for insured parcel post.
I am a small Quarab / American Indian Horse breeder; just two foals a year. They are sired by my sorrel solid paint-bred stallion that has excellent foundation QH lines and that I am sure carries a Sabino gene. The dams are my two black Arabian mares; both with some Egyptian bloodlines as well as Crabbet, Babson, Kellogg, and Davenport. These babies have good temperment, usually face and leg markings, and a good build from their dad.... (read more)
My horses live as a herd in as natural of a setting as I can provide in a pasture with a shed and trees for shelter. They are used to the elements and need no special pampering as some barn babies do. They eat pasture and some sweet feed during warmer months, with alflafa-grass mix hay and sweet feed when pasture grass is not available. Since they live as a group, they know how to socialize with other horses.
