This is an Original Len Brown Patriot Stitch Down saddle which was converted to a traditional type saddle by removing the flex tree panels (at the advice of Len Brown, Ortho Flex founder) and installing leather lining with wool and a medium tree. The original idea of flex panels was to distribute weight. The flexible panels did not function as intended but were actually creating pressure points. Len Brown advised converting to a tree saddle.
The medium tree would be excellent for a narrow high withered horse
