Bruno Delgrange PJ Close Contact Jumping Saddle. This is one of the highly desirable PJs made by Bruno Delgrange prior to PJ and Delgrange parting ways. Stamped 17 and as is common for this brand, measures just a hair snug so may work for a rider who takes a 16.5 to 17. Standard flap length and position for this seat size (3L in Bruno Delgrange), measuring approximately 13” from the top of the stirrup bar where the buckle sits to the bottom of the flap and approximately 13” in width at the widest part. Regular tree, measuring approximately 4 ¼” between the two dots under the pommel and suitable for horses of average build. Padded flap. Front blocks. Has both billet guards. Comes with over $200 worth of free fittings: Prestige Leathers ($145 at Dover http://bit.ly/2s8YQ7v), Horse-S Line Jointed Irons ($49.95 at Dover http://bit.ly/2rOyM2g) , with upgraded Cheese Grater style inserts for better grip than fillis pads (an extra $27.95 at Dover). Comes with an attractive designer saddle cover. Made in 2004. I see overall signs of use, including unevenness in the color on the seat, signs of a name plate on cantle, signs of use on billets, and some crackling lines on the seat (see close up photo). Retails for just under $5,000 for the saddle and the fittings. Great opportunity to get the performance of a top French brand without the usual price tag. Ours just $1695
