If you are not a fan of a deep seat and huge blocks this could be what you are looking for, an open seat which is not restricting yet well balanced, close contact monoflap design and a narrow twist seat enable the riders leg to sit close to the horse.

An 18" seat but, but only due to the shape of the cantle, it feels more like a 17.5".


The wool flocked panels are compact in overall length. Front gussets and deep shoulder panels help to support the saddle behind the shoulder. A medium to medium wide fit, suited to a Thoroughbred type.


Includes its original Ideal cotton cover.

The Impala is made in Walsall England by Ideal Saddles.
