Item #AN109C: Antares 17" Monoflap, 2015 Full Calfksin

$ 2,595.00

Antares 17” Monoflap Saddle. Features soft, grippy upgraded full calfskin leather option. Seat measures true to size by our tape. Front blocks (integrated into knee pads) and back blocks for a secure ride.  A great feature on this saddle is that there is a small ring on each side of the billets where they attach to the saddle to allow attachment of training aids if desired. Flap is forward in position. The flap is stamped for short length in the serial number, and we note that the actual length is comparable to a regular flap length in inches in length by the measuring tape, so this saddle may be a lovely choice for either a rider who takes a short flap or a rider who takes a regular length flap. Flap measures approximately 13” in length from the top of the stirrup bars where the stirrup leather buckle sits to the bottom of the flap and approximately 13.5” in width at the widest point.  Tree is likely to be most suited for warmbloods and other somewhat muscular builds, measuring approximately 4.5” between the two dots under the pommel. Made in 2015. Well-maintained, soft grippy leather. I see the usual signs of nameplate on back of cantle and some dark marks on seat. Very good condition overall. This saddle features the beautiful subtle hidden fancy stitch on underside of gullet, a gorgeous touch of elegance even though no one but you will know it’s there (it reminds me of the saddle version of Roberto Coin’s trademark jewelry detail where they put a small ruby on the inside of a ring band so that everyone else sees the diamonds on the exterior and only the wearer knows there is also a ruby on the inside. It’s fun!) Retail in the $5,000 - $6,000 range, ours just $2,595
