This is a SUPERB, brand new Verhan Futurity close contact saddle made in England and designed by leading saddle maker in the USA, Bernardo Vergara. In light oak leather, it is beautifully designed and balanced. We have researched feedback on this saddle and have found lots of really positive comments about the comfort and fit of this great saddle. We have marked this saddle as a 15.5ins to 16ins seat because when we measured it, it was 15.5ins to the front of the curve of the cantle, and 16ins to the back of the curve. It is officially a 16ins but thought we would point this out for clarity. The drop on the saddle flaps is 13ins and we measured 4.25ins from button to button at the gullet. Wool flocked, which is really nice for a close contact saddle as it allows for more accurate adjustment. This saddle comes with a free $200 value credit for an adjustment by Bernardo Vergara who is based in Ocala, FL.
