$ 2,995.00

SOLD

Antares 17” Close Contact Jumping Saddle.  Beautiful condition, ideal for a rider who wants a saddle in close to new condition but without the price and wait time. Seat measures true to size. Features soft, grippy premium upgraded full calfskin leather. Padded flap. Front and back blocks. Flap is stamped short and normal position (1N), though I note that the flap measurement in inches is one we often also see on a standard length (2N), 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 point. Comes with its original Antares fleecy-lined cover. Cutaway sweat flap improves rider’s contact through the lower leg. Regular tree, on the roomy side which will be useful for fitting a variety of horses, measuring approximately 4.5" between the dots under the pommel. Made in 2014. Beautiful condition, has never even had a nameplate on it, I just see typical signs of use on billets and a tiny pin prick on cantle. We also note that the seat looks lighter or darker depending on how freshly it is conditioned, so have included photos of both. One of my favorite features on this saddle is the hidden fancy stitch on the underside of the gullet; it’s a beautiful touch even if no one but you will see it very often. Comes with its original Antares fleecy-lined cover. New around $5,000 + wait time in the upgraded leather options.  $2995
