This saddle is the Ansur Chic model, size Petite, made in 2000. This is equal to a 17-17.5" treed saddle according to Ansur, but in my opinion, due to the lack of a tree the sizing is more "flexible". I believe it can be comfortably used by riders who normally use a 16.5"-18" treed saddle.
The trauma system was replaced 4 years ago and to my knowledge it has not been used much since. It comes with Ansur saddle cover, Ansur knee and thigh blocks, Ansur deluxe support system, Ansur dorsal pad, (Cashel?) shoulder shims, a Cashel wedge pad, and the two (homemade) non-slip pads that came with it when I bought it. I will also send the bucket that the saddle should be stored on, and the Cashel panels that were velcroed onto the underside when I got it. The velcro pieces were rubber cemented on but I carefully removed them. If desired I will re-"cement" them before shipping. The Stirrup leathers are included. The stirrups, however, are NOT included.
It is for sale because I'm looking for something that I can also show huntseat in, or I may switch to Wesern.
Asking $980 - This includes shipping and handling and Paypal transaction fees. I may also be interested in a trade or partial trade for a 16.5-17" MW-XW (depending on brand/model) AP or CC saddle. I would also consider a FQH bars 14-15" Western saddle with a round or otherwise short skirt.
I would be glad to get more pictures. Just ask!
