Saddle- general purpose. 17.5" 23cm D ring to D ring, so quite a narrow fit and I used for only about 5 months on my 15.3hh TB – but then had to sell her, as I ran out of money.
English leather- made in Reading as shown on photograph and is a Splading saddle. It is definetly not counterfeit. Brown. Some marks and leather needs TLC as a little stiff, as unused for a while, as I could not bear to part with it.
3 girth straps. Good knee and thigh rolls. Very comfortable. Tree undamaged.
I can certify that this saddle is genuine. It was originally purchased in the saddle shop in Reading, but a while ago now, so I sadly no longer have the receipt, as I have moved many times since I bought it.
Collection from near Waterlooville, Hampshire, or I can wrap and post, but safety of tree would worry me and would be your responsibility- although I would pack it very carefully. Most people who buy big things use Hermes as much cheaper than GPO and you can arrange payment at your end. If you choose this, I can have it out for them to collect once you have paid, sent me the bar code as I have to attach that once I print off and have packed item. Has worked well and is MUCH cheaper than the recommended delivery on this site, which is ridiculously expensive.
