Chunky Monkey saddles are made in the UK, designed specifically for chunky horses and ponies.


This one has a monoflap for close contact and covered in a soft calfskin leather.   A 17.5" seat with a well padded cantle which makes it feel a little smaller.


Made on a wide ( no5 ) compact tree with close contact wool flocked panels.   The tree and panel shape will suit a back with some shape front to back rather than flat and a well covered shoulder, definaltey not suited to a downhill slope or muscle atrophy either side of the withers.

The wooden tree is adjustable a size or two by a saddler. We measure it to be approximately an xw fit with a generous width of 6"/15cm between the front panels. 


Made in March 2019, in excellent condition. 


Includes a saddle cover.
