New without tags Crosby Sovereign close contact saddle with padded flaps. These were added on aftermarket by master saddler Anthony Cooper - see his website for more information about his workmanship and experience - and as shown in the pictures, you can see he has done an excellent job! Look like they're original! These saddles were marketed as very close contact without knee pads, which just isn't popular in the show ring today, hence the addition of knee pads.
Tried on horse one time. Has been conditioned but not used. Has a couple of small surface marks (as shown in pictures) which will eventually buff out and disappear, they are hardly noticeable unless you are looking for them. This saddle was made in Walsall, England and stamped as such. It is modeled after the Hermes Steinkraus (a $6,000 saddle) and is absolutely beautiful. The leather is a gorgeous oakbark color that is very high quality - Crosby used their best leather for the Sovereign model - and it will be luxuriously supple and butter soft once you break it in. Half deep seat, narrow twist. This is a true close contact saddle with a generous medium tree and excellent wither clearance. If you like to feel your horse underneath you, this is the saddle for you and you will love it!!!
Seat length - 17.5"
Seat width - 11"
Flap length - 14"
Flap width - 13.5"
Gullet opening - 4.75"
Comes with a navy & gold fleece Crosby embroidered protective cover. Saddle stand and saddle pad are not included. Brand new high quality perfectly matching Crosby stirrup leathers and a pair of fillis stirrups can be included with the full asking price only. A $130 value. This saddle retailed for over $2,000. I am open to considering REASONABLE offers. This is NOT an economy saddle; it is high quality leather and excellent craftsmanship, built to last you a lifetime. There's nothing wrong with it, it's just not being used, my daughter's new horse takes a wide. My loss is your gain. Would make an awesome Christmas present!!!
