Item #AN100C – Antares 17/17.5 2011, Regular Flap, Regular Tree

SALE $ 2,395.00 $ 2,595.00

Antares Close Contact Jumping Saddle. Stamped 17 and measures generously at approximately 17.5” by our tape (similar to a common measurement on most 17 Butet saddles) so may work for a rider who takes a 17 or 17.5. Featured soft grippy leather, with French gain flaps for softness and durability, and calfskin knee/seat. Seat is the most popular half-deep seat option (SC). Flap is standard length measuring approximately 13 ¼” from the top of the stirrup bar where the buckle sits to the bottom of the flap, and measuring approximately 14” in width at the widest point. Tree is regular, measuring approximately 4 ¼” between the dots under the pommel, and the panels are designed to offer wither clearance at the top (so this one won’t sit as low over the withers as some other French saddles); this could be a great saddle to try for the horse that has that hard-to-fit combination of big shoulder and high withers. Padded knee, with low profile knee pads (or to put it differently, slimmer knee pads, similar to those on a Butet for example, as opposed to thicker knee pads that stick out more). Three-point billet attachment system is designed to minimize pressure points on the horse’s back for greater comfort for the horse. One of my favorite features is the subtle fancy stitch on the gullet, as it’s such an elegant touch. Beautiful condition overall, I just see some darkening along cantle edge and some slight fading on the pommel. made in 2011. New custom retails in the neighborhood of $5,000 + wait time.
