All mud spatters have been scrubbed off! Saddle is immaculate. :-)
Made by Meyerstone in Argentina of European leathers. Pinnacle 18" medium close contact. Their medium runs wide, like a Crosby M.
This is a Schneider Saddlery saddle, item #17941 from the 2008 catalogs. It was the top-of-the-line Pinnacle saddle. The saddle, with fittings, sold for $800 on sale.
Model Name: Grand Selle
Color: Cigar (dark brown)
Catalog description: A narrower twist, slightly more forward flaps, and a deeper seat for more secure feel. Hand crafted of grained English leather in a rich Cigar color. Superior stainless steel recessed stirrup bars. Nylon reinforced billets. Flexible foam panels. Soft padded seat. Flexible spring steel tree guaranteed 5 years.
INCLUDES tan Pinnacle saddle cover, and the leathers and 4.75" irons shown. Leathers appear to be buffalo leather. Irons are chromed steel. But they look good enough to use.
Stamped on the billet flaps: 18 and Grand Selle
Numbers stamped on saddle: 18, M, and 86661821207.
Almost mint condition. No problems with billets, tree, seat, panels, or stirrup bars.
Soft seat, soft foam panels. Rides like a dream, especially on a choppy horse.
Long flaps. They are 16" from top of stirrup hanger bar to bottom of flap. Also probably 1" forward, for taller riders.
Padded flaps, Velcro knee blocks and also Velcro calf blocks.
Not a cheap saddle. This was the top of the Pinnacle line in 2008. It sold for $800 w/ fittings, on sale. Quality is up there with the Thornhill 24K Platinum, Pessoa, etc. - above average! It's a heavier saddle with a good solid feel to it. This is a more expensive Pinnacle.
Seat is exactly 18" center of nail to cantle, measured correctly.
