About this saddle

From the house of Niedersuss saddle makers this is the Olympik model which is in very good used condition although is an older model of saddle.  It has a 17ins seat and we measured the width fitting to be 4.5ins, which we regard as a medium.  Wool flocked.  The length of the saddle flaps is 16.25ins from the stirrup bar.  Made in Austria.  Please note the creasing of the leather on the seat, which is normal when fine leathers are used due to stretching of the leather during riding.  It does not affect the overall integrity of the saddle.

Saddle serial number de-coded:  KR RT 0311138MK243

138 serial number of saddle

M – medium width

This a classic dressage saddle with an improved “V billeting” system – a front strap built into the knee roll- serving as a fore girth and the back strap from the cantle.  Softer, thick foam padded, textured leather seat, for a more comfortable ride without slipping.  Wider spaced panels and gullet for a better fit on most horses.   The Niedersuss saddles have been chosen by the Austrian National Team, the Spanish Riding School, the Dutch National Team and numerous North American Grand Prix riders.

*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). 

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.
