Item #B77C - Butet 16/16.5, Regular Flap, Regular Tree, 2002

$ 595.00


Butet Close Contact Jumping Saddle. Stamped 16 and as is common for Butet, runs large measuring approximately 16.5” by our tape so may work for a rider who takes either a 16 or 16.5.  This is the "L" seat which is called "deep" by Butet and is actually in the middle of the seat depth options they offer (i.e. deeper than their P seat but not as deep as their C seat), comparable to a half-deep seat in many other brands. Flap is regular length and position, measuring approximately 13.5” from the top of the stirrup bar to the bottom of the flap, and approximately 13” in width at the widest point. Front blocks. Has both billet guards.  This saddle shows heavy wear throughout, so expect to see wear on seat, cracking lines on panels, spotting on underside of panels. The knee pads both have a tear (which does not affect functionality and isn't very visible when mounted but when unmounted is visible along seam where pad meets flap), and the previous owner removed the pads. Fair condition overall (i.e. functional but cosmetically challenged), reflected in price. Flaps are soft and supple (you can roll them to give you an idea of their suppleness). Made in 2002. Great opportunity to get into a Butet at an affordable price. We don't expect to have another in anywhere near this price point for quite some time, so if you or someone you know needs the performance of a Butet for pennies on the dollar, this is the chance. Retail new is $5500. Ours just $595
