SOLD

CWD 17” Close Contact Jumping Saddle. This is the SE02 model which is the deeper seat option. Features soft, grippy full buffalo leather option (CWD's most expensive leather upgrade option) perfect for the rider who appreciates a secure ride. Seat measures true to size by our tape. Flap is regular length and position (2L), measuring approximately 13.5” from the top of the stirrup bar where the buckle sits to the bottom of the flap and approximately 13.25” in width at the widest point. My favorite feature on this saddle, very hard to find on a CWD, is that the twist is more narrow than typically seen on a CWD (many riders feel that a narrow twist allows the rider’s leg to wrap down and around the horse really effectively.) If you normally prefer Butet for the narrow twist relative to the wider twist commonly seen on brands like CWD, Antares, or Devoucoux, this CWD could be your needle-in-a-haystack find!  Regular tree, measuring approximately 4 3/8” between the dots under the pommel, suitable for horses of average build. Features integrated panels for less bulk between horse and rider. Cutaway sweat panels offer optimal lower leg contact.  Very good condition, I just see typical signs of nameplate on cantle, some depressions in leather where the stirrup leathers would normally lay (see photos without fittings on left side), and each rear block has a worn corner. Comes with free CWD leathers and Metalab jointed irons. Made in 2009. Retails in the $5,000 - $6,000 range plus comes with close to $500 in fittings (CWD leathers retail $200 plus Metalab jointed irons retail $220 - $245 range). Phenomenal package at a fraction of the retail price! Ours just $2595
