This very nice dressage saddle features a soft, deep seat, narrow twist, medium thigh blocks, forward flap, wide gullet for maximum spinal clearance.
It is stamped: CHS Saddlery England, 4 1725 0162. As it measures 5.5ins at the gullet, we consider this is definitely a wide fit. The other flap is stamped 18″ #5 Fit. The saddle is in fairly good used condition, showing normal wear on the flaps and billets. Although in overall generally very good condition, we should point out that we noticed a) stirrup bar on near side has seized in the upward position, and will need straightening. (see pic), b) saddle panels are very well flocked and may need smoothing in places.
The length of the saddle flaps is 16ins from stirrup bar to the bottom of the flaps.
For info: Austrian rider, Herr Arthur Kottas-Heldenburg is a world-renowned former First Chief Rider from the Spanish Riding School in Vienna and is one of the world’s leading dressage authorities.
It must be ridden in to be believed! (See Arthur Kottas teaching on the video below:)
