Absolutely GORGEOUS Syd Hill Saddle -- the Bushmaster Suprema Poley with padded seat and rear cinch rings. This is in practically perfect condition: the leather is smooth and unblemished, the flaps show only very slight stirrup leather rubs, the serge is perfect, the flocking soft and springy. This saddle, as equipped would be about $3400 new. The poleys are 3 1/2", the depth of seat 4 1/4". The saddle's weight unfitted is about 21 pounds.
This seat size (16.5). This wide chamber is a good saddle for an average width horse with some wither.
Syd Hill Australian saddles have set the standard in quality, beauty and functionality for generations. These saddles are works of art. Now they are a good investment as well. Syd Hills are NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION, and so they are well on their way to becoming collector's items. When well cared for, these saddles hold their value and there is generally a very good market for them if you have to resell.
The cushioned trail stirrups are a $70 upgrade -- for no extra cost. Christie’s extra wide covered stirrups are available and brand new; add $140. Matching bridle, breast plate and saddle $1,500 plus shipping.
