The Paramour is part of Bliss's signature range, an elite range of saddles, its new retail price in Austrlaia is over $8000! A unique monoflap design with French calfskin leather for superior closeness.
Made on an xwide hoop tree with front gussets, it will suit a broad horse with a down hill slope to the back and an average wither. Note that even though this is on a hoop tree the pommel still has a reasonable height and will give three fingers clearance over an average height wither, its not recommended for a low or mutton wither.
Confirmd by Bliss as a 17" seat, it measures smaller
Made in 2019, still in excellent condition.
Includes matching stirrup leathers, lightweight stirrups and original Cover.
