No connection to the seller, but I stumbled upon this puppy and thought I'd alert some of you who might appreciate it:

http://cgi.ebay.com/EXSELLE-OLYMPIAN-CROSBY-SOFTRIDE-17M-SADDLE-NEW_W0QQitemZ280440914117QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_Def aultDomain_0?hash=item414b94c0c5#ht_500wt_924

This saddle is the living descendent of the Crosby Softride. Really. Exselle is Walsall Riding Saddle Co., the company that originally made Crosby saddles for Millers. They kept the designs and the connections to the original leather suppliers.

There is likely to be a bidding war, and I'm sorry if this post adds to it, but it's rare to find one of these saddles at all, let alone new and around this price.

If anyone gets it for 3 times the asking price it is still a bargain.

It's still at $255.00. Five days to go. I expect a bidding war towards the end.

So did I- so I put a watch on it...imagine my surprise when I won it. Guess I need to learn how to use Bidnapper better, huh??
Last thing in the world that I need is a new saddle! I am trying to CUT down- can't believe it still. Argh!

I think it said "winning bid $431" before the page jumped to "item no longer available" when I clicked the link.
