This is the popular shoulder freedom model, with the front panel cut away to allow uninterrupted shoulder movement.  Broad flock filled panels and a wide pommel make this saddle suited to the well built big shouldered horses.  It has an average height pommel which is well cut back for horses with an average wither rather than a low or mutton wither.

The gullet is adjustable to any size, currently approximately an xwide fit. 


This is an Otto size 1 seat, which measures 41cm, just a little larger than 16".  The deep seat and the knee block set back further due to the cut back shoulder make the seat feel snug, so best suited to a petite rider.


Note that tho its only a small seat and does have compact panels its not a pony sized saddle.


Otto Shumacher saddles are made in Germany using quality leather and skilled craftsmen. This saddle was made in 2012, has only had light use and was not used for several years.
