Super all purpose saddle made by Smith Worthington of Connecticut, USA. (They have been saddle makers since Washington was President!). This model has a 16ins seat in brown leather, and we measured the gullet to be 4ins, which is a narrow width fitting. Spring tree, made with premium quality buffalo leather. Made in England. Note: some fading to the color on the buffalo leather in places.
This saddle has a multi-tasking appeal whether you’re hunting across fields, riding hunter/jumper or simply pleasure riding. Note: the Avalon fits 1” larger than it measures. If you normally use a 17 ½” saddle, try a 16 ½” Avalon. Smith-Worthington incorporates over 200 years of saddle making knowledge and some of the world’s finest materials in these saddles.
Steel & wood spring trees with strong overlapping steel head plates allow tree adjustment many times as your horse muscles and matures or if you get a different horse.
Gussetted panels with virgin wool flock stuffing allow proper fit to your horse.
“Fired” (pre-stretched) pure linen webbing insures that the seat never sags – you sit in a “hammock” of web and never hit the steel bars of the tree.
Deeply recessed stirrup bars nearly eliminate stirrup leather bulge under the skirts.
Lifetime tree warranty.
