OK, Not fair. I'm reading all of this on my computer while DH goes over our bank account on his computer. LOL.

The scratches all look pretty superficial to me...but there could be more unseen damage. What a shame!!
Wow! Tack of the day has the Pro Circuits on sale for $74.22!! Regular and low rise, still lots of sizes left!
I so wish this were my size....
Such a shame, but what also piques my curiosity is the lack of info on the saddle, flap length, seat style..... I wonder if the horse go loose with the saddle on..... Maybe I'll call.....
I don't need more boots.... I don't need more boots....
Re: Any Hermes saddle. Not that I'm saying you should buy one in awful condition but, you can send any Hermes saddle back to Paris where Hermes will repair the saddle for of course $$$.
Each saddle # is recorded in a book, along with the date made, and the names of those who made that saddle. (And now on line, you can trace your saddle back to the year it was made. Well, I got a nice guy at a saddle shop to find out when mine were made.) I've never had to have mine repaired. But they will add blocks, etc., for $$$.
So maybe a cheap Hermes, with a good tree, is worth the repair cost.
"As someone who has had a cat do the same thing to TWO saddles, I can almost guarantee it was a cat."
Which is why I keep a pad on top of my saddle.
17" Butet currently going for $500 (!!!). Small tears on each knee roll. What a deal though, wonder how high it will go.
