Gorgeous used and unusual CWD SE09 BLACK leather monoflap close contact / event saddle with 17.5ins seat and medium width fitting (we measured 4ins at the gullet). Saddle flaps measure 13.5ins top to bottom.
The semi-deep Cross-country saddle with single flaps gives a good support and a good guideline to the rider’s pelvis, whilst restraining the centre of gravity’s mobility. The rider is offered a refined close contact. This saddle is ideal for all three parts of Eventing. For the horse : The wide panels are concave to allow a better pressure distribution of the saddle along the horse’s back. The saddle opening is increased around the shoulders to free up the horse’s movements when in action. For the rider : The single flaps offer a refined close contact that enables the rider to have precise actions as he can feel the horse move under him. The close contact has been worked on with a lower cut of the saddle flap around the stirrup bars so that there is only one layer of leather under the skirt. The front blocks are integrated into the knee rolls. The pommel is widened with a thicker strip of foam that overlaps on both sides of the pommel to support the rider’s abductors. Front and hind block maintain the rider’s leg in a correct position. The seat is longer and flat for the rider to be able to change his position and move around his centre of gravity. Every cut piece of leather of this high quality saddle has been sanded, dyed, and then varnished for a soft touch. This high quality saddle is made of calfskin and full grain leather that nicely goes smooth with time.
