16" Bates Caprilli CC just reflocked with wool

Ok so long story short, the only saddle that fits Kesi is a Bates Caprilli...I recently took the plunge and had it flocked with wool and it's soft and great...but Kesi is STILL too fat and outgrew the XW a long time ago. Instead of waiting for him to get slim and trim again I'm considering just selling this and getting a treeless, and then maybe putting some money into a wintec close contact when he's thinner just to have something to jump in. No point in having this gorgeous saddle if it doesn't freakin' fit.

So.

16" Bates Caprilli CC
Havana Brown
Regular Flaps
Less than a year old, and probably only used 10 times.
WOOL FLOCKED
Changeable gullet
Will include matching Bates Stirrup leathers
50" matching Stubben Havana girth for an extra 50$

Cost me 1700$, and I paid almost 700$ to have it reflocked! MAKE ME AN OFFER. JUST WANT TO GET RID OF IT SO I CAN BUY A TREELESS. WILL CONSIDER ALL OFFERS

Willing to trade for a Bob Marshall or other reputable treeless saddle.


I only have one pic of it right now because I wasn't intending on selling it right away.

The panels thato sit on the horses back were filled with the CAIR panels, which are pockets full of air. I liked them, but they could get rather hard in different conditions (cold, high altitude) I had those panels taken out and had nice soft wool put in their place.

That's a shame that you have to sell it. I have a Bates CC and I really like it.

Good luck finding it a new home...it's really nice.

I know this is quite a long shot...but is there any chance at all that this is still available?
