Item #CW87C - CWD 18" 4L (Extra Long) Flap, Full Calfskin, 2014, TB-type fit for high-withered horse
CWD 18" Close Contact Jumping Saddle. If you have always loved the comfort of brands like CWD, Devoucoux, Voltaire etc. for rider but never thought you could find one offering enough wither-clearance for your high-withered horse, this may be the one for you! (Please tell you friends if they are on such a needle-in-a-haystack search.) This is the SE02 model, which is the deeper seat option. Seat measures true to size by our tape. Flap is extra long, standard position (4L), measuring approximately 15” from the top of the stirrup bar where the buckle sits to the bottom of the flap, and approximately 14 ¾” in width at the widest part. Full calfskin, a premium upgrade for extra grip in the saddle. Integrated panels for less bulk between horse and rider. Cutaway sweat flaps offer optimal lower leg contact. Features front and back blocks. Has both billet guards, the full-length kind which are nice because they cover the full length of the billet guards. Padded flaps. Tree fit best suited to the OTTB type build (a horse with a high wither and more of a slab-sided, lighter build. If you tell me your horse has shark-fin withers, I love this saddle for you.). It’s a more the type of tree fit that we typically associate more with Butet, Hermes, etc. saddles. This is a very rare find to see one made to suit a high-withered TB type build in CWD, Devoucoux, Voltaire etc. Panels are built up more under the seat to keep the seat balanced evenly from front to back on a high-withered horse. Very good condition. I see some creasing on the knee pads and you will see the nature texture of the calfskin on the flaps. Has not had a nameplate on it, so let yours be the first. Made in 2014. Beautiful saddle, new in the $5k - $6k range new. Compared to ordering new you will save thousands, avoid wait time, and enjoy the ability to test ride your exact finished product before you financially commit. Ours just $2495.
