This is an Astund "special". Made in Iceland. Astund is the premier saddle maker. Very comfortable saddle. I've ridden on day long trail rides and I've been very comfortable. Unfortunately, it does not fit the horse I now ride. It fit the horse I sold wonderfully. It is a 16 - 16.5 seat. Saddle is in very good shape, and the leather is excellent quality. There are scuff marks on the rear of the cantle where it rubbed inn the trailer. I need to sell this saddle so I can get one that will fit my horse. This saddle has been used on Icelandics and TWH. This saddle does not put you in a "chair seat" as so many of the icelandic saddle will.
