I'm selling 2 Close Contact/Jumping saddles to pay off vet bills and moving expenses. I bought them to try on my horse but don't need them anymore since I sold her. They're also listed on eBay and will ship for free if purchased outside of eBay (won't have to pay fees). I'm asking what I paid which is $2,000 each but am negotiable as I need the money. First saddle purchased comes with Red Barn stirrup leathers and irons. PayPal preferred.

1. Tad Coffin 17". A5 model made in 1999. It is in great condition except for some minor surface cracking (not visible when riding) that has gotten better with daily conditioning. Gullet measures 6" from dot to dot. Flap if 13.5" from stirrup bar to bottom and almost 13" across the widest point. Billets in excellent shape, tree is sound, flaps show very little wear, and all stitching is tight. It is VERY comfortable to ride in and is one of my favorite saddles I've had so far (and I've had a lot)! It is very secure, even over the bigger fences (I've jumped up to 4' in it). It did NOT fit my narrow, high withered TB but did fit my friends warmblood.

2. Hermes Close Contact 16". Not sure what model but looks like a Steinkraus. It is in good condition with some minor discoloration. Two small marks on front, not visible while riding. Gullet measures 4" from dot to dot. Flaps measure 13.5" from stirrup bar to bottom and 13" across the widest point. Billets are in excellent shape and have original billet guards. Tree, flaps, and stitching all in excellent condition. Very comfortable to ride in and puts you in a good position over jumps (I've done up to 3'6" in this one)! It DID fit my narrow, high withered TB but not the warmblood.

Thanks for looking! I'll post pictures below.
