$ 2,595.00

Bruno Delgrange Close Contact Jumping Saddle. Stamped 18, measures between 17 ¾ and 18 by our tape.  Features extraordinarily soft, supple leather, ideal for the rider who is super picky about leather selection. Secure, comfortable saddle suitable for advancing your riding to the next level. 2009 model. This is the Partition model, which the manufacturer describes as a half-deep seat. Here is a link to more info from the manufacturer on this model: https://www.brunodelgrange.com/en/jumping-saddle/2-partition.html   This is the two-billet design, which eliminates the common problem of the third lesser used billet not stretching evenly.  Features cut-away design at bottom of the flap to give superior contact through the lower leg. Flap is forward with a length proportional to the seat size. Flap measures approximately 13” (because of cutaway design it's going to measure differently than a comparable flap with the traditional design, so if you take a 14" in the traditional design, this would be the equivalent flap in the cutaway) from the top of the stirrup bar to the bottom of the flap, and approximately 15” in width at the widest part of the flap. Regular tree, measuring approximately 4 3/8” between the two dots under the pommel, suitable for horses of average build. Front and back blocks. Has both billet guards.  Excellent condition, I just see typical signs of wear on billets. Has never had a nameplate on it, so yours would be the first. New in the neighborhood of $5,000.
