FOR SALE OR SWAP (for a 14" or 14.5")
Here I have my beautiful show saddle for sale made by the Saddle Company in Walsall. It is brown leather with suede seat and knee rolls. The tree is fully adjustable by a SC saddle fitter to any width!
This saddle is the Genoa model which means it is fully leather with serge panels that are soft and warm for your horses back and wool flocked - see further down this ad to learn more about serge!
This saddle has 15" panels and a 15.5" seat to allow for more room in the saddle - Excellent for riders on a short backed pony or cob!
The saddle is in near new condition, only being ridden in two to three times, unfortunately it is just a little too long for my very short back 11hh Welsh section A that I would like to use it on. So with this in mind I'd be more than willing to swap for the same saddle or similar in a 14" or 14.5" seat. I'd prefer another Saddle Company Saddle either the show saddle or working hunter style, however I would consider another brand if the measurements would fit.
The below information on Serge panels is extracted from The Saddle Company's own website:
".What is the benefit of having wool flocked serge panels?
A. Serge is a natural, breathable material and whilst it will absorb moisture and sweat it dries out very quickly allowing the flocking inside to retain its natural softness. It is soft and warm to the horses back and allows the horse greater freedom of movement through the back and shoulders. Many people see significant changes in their horses shape and movement in a very short period of time."
The saddle can be re flocked just like any other saddle.
This saddle is in perfect condition with just a very small faint rub from a stirrup leather on one side just behind the knee roll however this could easily be covered with a saddle cream restorer in the interest of being honest I have not done this myself and it is not visible when ridden.
Photos of the actual saddle to come later today when I get them uploaded on my computer - The photo is the same model that I have though. It truly is a beautiful saddle and I'm really sad that it is just that little bit too long on our pony.
Postage arrange separately believe it will be around £20 but I we can check that later.
