Marks, damage or wear: heavy stirrup leather wear on flaps, took photos when the saddle was recently oiled to “exaggerate”the wear so clients can tell from photos where the rub marks start and end. (look worse in photos than in real life, could easily stain with Raven Oil to achieve a more even look.) very light scruffs on flaps and cantle.
This saddle is in good condition with a few wear marks. The saddle has had the tree, girth straps and stitching checked which is all in good condition.
