I'm selling my saddle because it just doesn't fit my midget :(
This saddle is a Circuit Elite (sold exclusively by Dover Saddlery) close-contact saddle, 17" seat, wide tree. The color is oakbark, which is a really striking color and looks good on any horse, but is really stunning on greys and chestnuts.
The saddle was bought a little over a year ago and used for only a couple of months - it was used lightly by a balanced rider so the flocking perfectly even with no wear at all, and it was cleaned scrupulously so it's in great condition. There is slight wear from the stirrup leathers which is totally invisible when you're riding. I'm selling this saddle because I need a medium for Danny.
The tree is a narrow twist (I believe - check the Dover catalogue or website to be sure) and very sturdy, and the fairly shallow seat is perfect for hunters and eq, but also deep enough to take you over big fences. If you want a really good quality saddle (recommended by renowned A Circuit trainer Geoff Teall!) for a good price and without having to break it in, THIS IS THE SADDLE FOR YOU!!!
I'm asking $700 or best reasonable offer, or I will trade for a good quality medium tree jumping saddle.
(This saddle is sold without stirrup leathers and irons.)
And here's the saddle on a 16hh Appendix Gelding - (bad angle, sorry)
Let me know if you guys want any other pics!
