$ 1,695.00

SOLD

If you are a taller or longer-legged rider on wide horse, and you want the performance and comfort of a top brand at an affordable price, this may be your saddle. Devoucoux Biarritz 17.5” Close Contact Jumping Saddle.  Seat measures true to size by our tape. Flap is standard position, extra long (4) suitable either for a taller rider or a rider who is short torso/all legs build.  Flap measures approximately 14.5” from top of stirrup bar to bottom of the flap and approximately 13” in width at the widest point. Tree in our opinion is best suited to a horse with the combination of big shoulder and need for some wither clearance, as it's built with wither clearance up top then widening through the panel angle for a muscular build. Tree is stamped wide (“Arcade Ouvert”)  in serial number, and please note that because it's also built for wither clearance, it's not going to fit like a plain old wide that matches a low-withered horse if that makes sense. Made in 2008. Durable French grain leather with calfskin knee/seat. Leather is soft and supple.  There are some cosmetic things to point out that bring this saddle to you at an affordable price. (Cosmetic boo boos are one of my favorite ways to find top quality saddles at a bargain price if you are searching for that unicorn saddle.) Seat shows some uneven darkening, and ding on cantle. Panels show some sweat marks and dark spots, and a ding or two along front edge. Channel on underside of saddle has some nicks and crazing. Billets and soft French grain leather flaps are in fantastic condition, ready to offer many more years of service. Get the performance of a saddle that retails in the range of $5,5000 - $6,200+ new at a fraction of the price.  $1695
