*All measurements provided have either been taken directly from saddle stamps, or are approximate measurements taken by experienced Good Apple Equine Consignment staff.  This information is provided as a courtesy to our customers, and is not a guarantee of size or fit as each individual saddle differs from the next (including those of the same brand and model).

If you are looking for a superior, handmade saddle made by  SMS (Society of Master Saddlers) craftsmen,  this is the saddle for you.  It is, as to be expected, beautifully made and balanced.  It has a pure wool serge panel, which absorbs heat and sweat better than leather.  The seat on this saddle is suede, but the front three-quarters has lost its nap.  (It may be revived with specialist treatment).  IT ALSO FEATURES SWEPT BACK TREE POINTS which do not interfere with the horse’s shoulders.

Saddle Width Measurement:  Please note we measure 3-4 ins down from the center of the pommel and in, to where we can see the horse would start to make contact with the panels. We feel this is a more meaningful measurement than measuring button to button or at the extreme front of the saddle.
