SOLD

Devououcoux Oldara 17.5 Close Contact Jumping Saddle.  Seat measures true to size by our tape.   Very good condition, beautifully maintained.  Flap is regular in length and forward in position (2A in this brand) measuring approximately 13.5” from the top of the stirrup bar where the stirrup buckle sits to the bottom of the flap and approximately 13.5” in width at the widest point. (The forward position flap is helpful for riders who are long from hip to knee and/or those who shorten stirrups for larger fences.) Featured front and back blocks. Padded flap, featuring nice full padding for extra support to press your knee into as the jumps get larger or when your horse is fresh. Tree is regular (a pretty typical regular for this brand in our opinion, suitable for fitting many horses, with a generous fit), measuring approximately 4.5” between the dots under the pommel. The Oldara model features a slightly flatter seat depth. (Note from Cori: I've always had a special place in my heart for this brand/model, as one of my trainers who qualified for the Olympics rode in an Oldara and from among all the saddle options he could have chosen, this was his preference; I always loved when I got to ride in his Devoucoux Oldara saddle as it's such a comfortable model in my opinion). Made in 2007 and maintained so well that is looks only a few years old. Lovely condition, I just see the usual signs of previous nameplate on back of the cantle (which would be covered by your nameplate) and some very faint faded spots on the hidden underside of the sweat flap. Black in color, featuring durable French grain leather with calfskin seat/knees for softness and grip.  New $5,350 and up. Ours just $1495
