If you have a lot of leg and like contact, this is your saddle. Flaps measure 16" from stirrup bar to lower edge. They are 14.5" wide. The shaped knee rolls and pencil blocks afford the correct leg position without getting between you and the horse. You are in this saddle, not on top of it. Plus, the added leather lets you ride with a longer, more secure leg without your knees being in your nose.
The flaps and billets show little wear or signs of use. The leather is substantial but very soft and supple. The only fault with this saddle are some sweat stains on the under panels. These were here when I bought the saddle.
Ovations are made by Ruiz Diaz in Argentina. This is the same factory that made Pessoas. However, Ovations are the same quality for about 1/3 the bucks.
My personal saddle is this exact model, 465060, in a 17" and I just picked up another for a guest saddle. I love Ovations and think they are a grossly underrated manufacturer. After riding for 54 years and owning horses for 46, I have seen and ridden in tons of different saddles. You can show, trail ride or hunt all day in this saddle and be nothing but comfortable.
The only reason I am selling this saddle is that the tree, although marked M for medium, seems a tad wider than both my 17s". The 18" simply does not fit my TBs, who are far from having high withers. I would call it a Medium/Wide.
So, if you are a long legged rider and have a substantial mount (but not flat backed), take a good long look at this baby. I really want it to find a good home. Three day trial is offered to make sure it fits. You pay return shipping.
Shipping is $30 to within the continental US. Thanks so much!!
