$ 2,595.00

SOLD

CWD Close Contact Jumping Saddle. Beautiful high-performance grippy saddle for a slender rider with longer legs. Stamped 17, and measures about 16 ¾” so may work for a rider who takes a 16.5 to 17. Features soft, grippy full calfskin leather. Comes with free calfskin leathers by Antares (we always recommend calfskin leathers if you are riding in a calfskin saddle) and free 4.5” MDC Sport irons with the wider tread for rider foot comfort (I find the wider tread especially helpful to prevent numbness on the ball of your foot during longer mounted sessions such as clinics etc). Long flap, standard position (3L) measuring approximately 14.5” from the top stirrup bar to the bottom of the flap and approximately 14” in width at the widest point. Tree suitable for a higher withered to average horse, with a measurement between the dots of 4” – 4 ¼”. Integrated panels allow for a close feel of the horse with minimal bulk. Cutaway sweat flap improves the rider’s contact through the lower leg. If I am picky I do see some darkening from use, discoloration/spotting on underside of panels, cantle rubs, block rub, and a couple scratches on seat. (While I point these things out to be thorough, please see photos to appreciate the nice condition overall.) Very good condition overall. (You will also see some natural striations in the calfskin color on the seat as shown in the seat photo; that is not a flaw, just the grain of that particular batch of calfskin).  Made in 2012. Retails new in the calfskin is around $5,000 plus around $350 in value in the free fittings. Great opportunity to get a beautiful CWD with all of the performance at about half the price plus no wait time. $2595
