The Darwin Poley Special was designed by and developed especially for riders who want safety, a deep seat, close contact for extra control, and all-day comfort. This is the saddle and it is the one that can be ridden for all purposes; training, performing, and pleasure alike.
Like most working saddles in Australia, the Darwin Poley Special has tough, close contact wool felt panels. It also has the deepest seat of any Down Under saddle. The deep, comfortable seat makes this an ideal saddle for long trail rides. Nickle fittings, rich black leather, and white stitching, give this saddle a striking Western look. Note that the Darwin Poley Special is only available with a horn.
Like our fleece panel saddles, the Darwin Poley Special works well on lower withered and broad backed horses. Just send us a wither tracing and we can tell you if it is right for your horse. We can even custom fit the saddle to your wither tracing at no additional cost!
Because of the close contact panels, we recommend using an Equipedic pad, sheepskin pad, or high quality western pad with this saddle.
This saddle comes with 2.5" color matched leathers, overgirth, premium fleece girth (GIRT 330), and your choice of aluminum stirrups, stainless steel 4 bar stirrups, down & out Aussie safety stirrups, or Aussie safety oxbow stirrups. The brass 4 bar stirrups shown in the photos have been discontinued and are no longer available. Let us know which stirrups you prefer in the rider information text box.
