16" Broken Horn Custom Show Saddle Acorn Fino For Sale

I have a 16" acorn fino Broken Horn custom saddle that is better than Dale Chavez! The first owner said it was purchased in 2006 for over $5,000. She never rode in it, and I have only ridden in it twice. It has been professionally cleaned. Any shading is from the camera.

This saddle is from California and is not very common over East. But, the seatwork in these Broken Horn saddles is fantastic. Men are comfortable in this saddle, and Women can get their legs around it because the seat is narrow in the right places. They position you with your feet underneath you, so that you can use your shock absorbers. It's excellent for WP and for equitation.

Gullet: SQHB
Seat" 16" from inside of pommel to the stitch on the cantle.
Weight: I'd estimate it's around 35lbs to 38lbs. This is not a flimsy flex tree saddle. It is traditional construction, and it's built to last decades. Not thin leather either.

Nice hand carving.

It has a nameplate, but it might be possible to replace the letters and reuse this plate. You can get a full silver cantle from Broken Horn in Baldwin Park, CA. Or, you can order a replacement plate with you name on it. Contact Broken Horn for more information.

The fenders and stirrup leathers are standard, i.e., nothing is customized for either tall or short rider, and stirrup leathers have not been cut. It is in great condition except that there is a light scratch under the cantle where I bumped into a saddle rack. You can hardly notice it.

Please e-mail durendax@aol.com for photos. It is priced at $2,250 firm.

It is located outside of Nashville, TN. Shipping is $60.00
