Item #AN93C - Antares 17" Full Calfskin, Flap for a Taller Rider, with Free Antares Leathers and Compositi Stirrups

$ 2,295.00

SOLD

Antares 17” Close Contact Jumping Saddle. Seat measures true to size. Wide tree.  If you are especially choosy about leather, this may be the saddle for you as it comes from one of the best batches of leather that we have seen in terms of softness and grip. Premium grippy full calfskin leather. Flap is suitable for a taller ride, with a long (4) flap. (I note that the measurement on this 4 flap is 14” inches which is also often the same measurement on a 3 flap, which is long but not as long as a 4. So this flap may be suitable for a rider who takes a long flap either a 3 or 4 length.)  Flap measures approximately 14” from the top of the stirrup bar to the bottom of the flap, and approximately 13” in width at the widest point. Standard flap position. Wide tree, measuring approximately 4 5/8” between the dots under the pommel; as this measurement is just slightly more roomy than their typical regular tree, this tree offers a lot of versatility. Comes with free Antares calfskin leathers and free Compositi lightweight irons (in black color which is suitable for jumpers or schooling) that are made in Belgium. Made in 2003. Very good to excellent condition, exceptionally well cared for; this saddle has never even had nameplate on it yet, so yours would be the first. Padded flap. Features front and back blocks for a secure ride. Comes with both billet guards, the attached kind which is nice to minimize the chance of losing them. Incredibly soft, supple, grippy leather. If you want a saddle with all the bells and whistles at below half the retail price + no wait time, this may be your saddle.  Comes with Antares fleecy-lined cover. Retail value is over $5,000 for the saddle alone plus over $225 for the fittings. $2295 SOLD
