County Stabilizer 17” Close Contact Saddle. Seat measures true to size. County Stabilizer Close Contact Saddle. Stamped 17. Incredibly soft, supple leather. Here is what the manufacturer has to say about the Stabilizer model: " 'The Soundness Solution.' When you combine our patented tree, which eliminates twisting on the landing side of a jump; our specially designed wool flocked panels with unique features which can eliminate saddle shifting, your horse will tell you almost immediately: The Stabilizer™ is unquestionably 'The Best for Backs.' "  Padded flap. Integrated panels, for the closest possible feel of the horse and less bulk under the rider’s leg. No blocks (This option is suitable for a rider who likes to place their leg as opposed to having the saddle force a certain leg placement. If you prefer blocks, they can be added by a saddler. Last time I checked blocks could be added for about $150). Has both billet guards (not original). Made in 1999. Per the consignor, the saddle was last reflocked in March 2015, so the flocking is new and ready for the buyer to enjoy for years to come. Flap is stamped forward and measures long, suitable for a longer-legged rider. Flap measures approximately 15" from stirrup bar to bottom of flap and approximately 14" in width at the widest point. Tree is stamped medium and as is often the case with County brand, runs very generous, so fit may compare more to a wide in other brands; in our experience this tree will best fit a more muscular build of horse. Very good condition, I just see faint spider crackling if I look very close in a few areas. Wool-flocked, which allows a saddler to adjust the flocking to further fine-tune the fit to your horse to a certain extent, and as noted, has been replaced this year so is new and ready to use for years to come.  If you love soft, supple leather, this may be the one for you. County saddles retail in the range of $5,000 new. $1595  SALE $1295 SOLD
