FS: Courbette saddle, rope halter, & black bridle
I'm at my mom's house for Christmas, & I'm starting to go through some of the horsey stuff that I have stored here to see what I want to bring home to FL with me to use on Smoke, & what I no longer have a use for. I've put a few things up on ebay so far:

1) 17" Courbette Husar Fels Bach all purpose saddle - $255 starting bid
eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

2) brand new blue rope halter - $9.99 starting bid
eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

3) new non-brand name black bridle, reins, & loose-ring bit - $9.99 starting bid
eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

These are all on 3 day listings, since I'll only be here until Saturday, but if anyone decides after this that they'd like to make an offer, let me know! I can always have my mom ship stuff out after I leave.

Just wanted to bump this up - they all have about 13 hours left at auction.

What size is the bridle? And are the reins braided? And is it leather or a synthetic material

The bridle actually sold on ebay, sorry!

The saddle & halter are still available. I can post more pics/info once I'm home from my trip this coming weekend, if anyone is interested.

This is an older Courbette Husar Fels Bach AG all purpose english saddle. It was made in Switzerland out of quality leather and has wool flocking (unlike the newer Courbette saddles). I bought it used about 5 years ago & used it for trail riding, but since it will not fit my current horse (who needs a size medium/wide), it has just been sitting around un-used for the past 3 years. It has been stored zipped up in a saddle bag inside of my closet. It was sold to me as a size 17, & measures 17" from the center of the cantle to the front of the button, 16.5" to the back of the button. It was originally sold to me as a "medium" tree size, however I believe Courbette saddles tend to run a bit narrow, so I'm listing it as a "medium/narrow", just to be on the safe side. No actual tree size is listed, but I measured the gullet at the front of the saddle, & it is 5" across. It measures 15.5" from the stirrup bar to the bottom of the flap, & across the top from the cantle to the pommel is 16". The saddle does have knee rolls. All billets are in working order. This saddle is an older model, & does show signs of use, however it is in very good condition for its age, & has MANY quality years left in it. There are a few scratches on the cantle (see pictures), but nowhere is the saddle torn or breaking. It's not been oiled since I last used it, but since it has been stored indoors, the leather is in good shape.

The halter is made of blue rope, with hard rawhide type material across the noseband & cheek pieces. It is new & has never been on a horse. It's just been sitting in my mom's closet for the past 4 years. I'd say it is normal horse sized.

Just wanted to bump this up. The halter & saddle are still for sale. I also have some used irons + Stubben leathers that I could include with the saddle, $350 total.
