Really nice, Scottish handcrafted, gently used Sankey Contour dressage saddle for sale. It has a 17.5ins seat, with what we consider to be a medium width fitting. (No stamps on the saddle, except seat size and logo). The saddle flaps measure 17.25ins. Nice wide gullet for the horse's spinal comfort.
Sankey Saddlery is a small saddle making company based in Kilsyth, Glasgow Scotland. Andrew Sankey ( Managing Director ) is a Master Saddler and a member of the The Society of Master Saddlers, and is one of the few remaining master craftsmen. Unlike many modern saddle manufacturers, he still works from a cobbler-type shop filled with leather, saddle trees and all the other material needed to build a saddle from start to the finish.
While many saddle makers have gone to using laser cutters and other modern technology, Andrew Sankey still uses cutting boards and traditional saddle making hand tools. From his small workshop, Andrew is now exporting all over the world and is in high demand by many professional riders and trainers. All saddles are handcrafted by Andrew Sankey and his young apprentice Mark Rooney from start to finish which has been a major part to the success of his saddles. No stone unturned, his watchful eye insures that quality and attention to detail is of the highest standard.
