The County Competitor is a popular choice for both dressage and showing, it offers a deep secure seat without the huge knee blocks as on most modern saddles, a much more elegant look.


This older model (made in 1995) is still very sought after. This one was made as a medium but has had some alterations, both the gullet angle and the channel have been widened, its now an xw fit with good spinal clearance. The flock panels are very upswept so great for a short or curved back. 


Probably made as a black saddle but has faded and could pass as black or brown.
