2007 17" Close Contact Collegiate Saddle with Exchangeable gullet system. This saddle has fit every horse I have put it on. I bought it to fit a high-withered thoroughbred who couldn't where anything else, and it worked perfectly. The saddle is in excellent condition defying its age due to regular and loving care. I am selling it because I have moved on to more specialized forward-flap cross country saddles for jumping. Comes with Narrow and Regular gullets.
Saddle retails for over 1300$ USD (over 1600$ CAD). Advertisement on Dover Saddlery website reads "Nicely suited for hunter or equitation disciplines, the Collegiate Convertible Close Contact Saddle features a narrow twist and traditional padded flaps in full-grain European leather. Flaps are beautifully accented with subtle contrast stitching. Front and rear blocks attach with hook-and-loop fasteners so that they can be positioned to your personal preference or removed altogether. This saddle has the EASY-CHANGE™ Gullet System and flocked panels, allowing you to fit it to your horse’s conformation. The EASY-CHANGE Gullet System lets you alter the width of the gullet by swapping out gullet plates to achieve the most comfortable fit over your horse’s withers and shoulders. The system is measurable, easy to use and gullet plates can be changed as your horse develops. Includes a medium gullet. Collegiate saddles have always represented great quality and traditional design at a competitive price. Collegiate Convertible saddles build on this tradition with the addition of the EASY-CHANGE Gullet System. Collegiate is a proud sponsor of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association."
