A deep seated saddle with large knee blocks, styled to suit either dressage or the show ring.
This saddle will suit a very wide horse or large cob type pony, the gullet measures a massive 17cm between the panels and is very wide in its angle approx xxxw,
The panels are broad and flat through the centre sweeping up at the front and rear, with a very close contact front panel, so ideal for a short back and one thats well covered in front . Probably not suited to a back that slopes down to the shoulder as on many quarter horse types, more suited the more level or up hill back of a cob or clydy type.
Made in 2010, its been well used, with some reasonable wear on the flaps. This is reflected in the price, as these are $5000 new!
