I have a brand new Bates Isabel 17 inch black Dressage saddle for sale. It was given to me by Bates as they could not fix my original saddle. I put it on my horse today for the first time and as my horse has funky conformation it did not fit. I mounted, sat in it for 2 minutes to check the fit with weight and decided that I couldn't get it to work on him. That is the only contact with a horse it has had. It still has the tag on it. I am gutted as it looks fantastic and I have always wanted one, but I love my horse too much to ride him in a saddle that doesn't work (He is shaped like a giraffe, so he is very hard to fit!
I will also include with it a full gullet set. Also as I am getting a saddle package to replace it I will also include new irons and leathers. The leathers are used and I have punched extra holes in them as I let them stretch a bit . But hey, they are great for schooling or showing as they are nice quality and in good shape. The gullet kit has also seen use with a previous saddle (not on a horse but moved around with me a bit).
I am asking $2100 for the set or best offer. I will also be listing this on ebay and other sites, so if you are interested in more infomation just shout!.
Most tack shops sell this new with no extras for around $2699. Smartpak has some on sale but the 17 inch is sold out so this is officially the cheapest price for a brand new saddle!
