STEELE "EQUITATION" ENGLISH SIDESADDLE.THIS saddle is New & in show shape, ready to ride. You just need your own safety stirrup & girth! The balance girth is adjustable. It is also from Hundred Oaks This saddle is awesome. It is just too wide for my Paint Horses I would choose it as a dressage saddle since it rides so nicely!!! It is a close contact feel that also makes riding gaited horses a pleasure. It will sit on your horse like an astride cutback saddle.
Includes billet converters for using a western cinch and a western stirrup. I can give you the name of a fantastic saddler to make a custom western stirrup leather to make this saddle convertible- for showing in western divisions.The stirrup bar on this saddle will accommodate one. This saddle is adjustable from 20, 21, & 22 inch for the seat. I have it set to 21". It adjusts with an Allen key (not included) The tree width is XW. It measures 8" between the panels at the dees (inside measurement)
This saddle is made with a wooden tree, which is not reinforced for jumping, BUT it is a sturdy saddle. It is built like a western tree. You can use it for the trail class, where there are small step overs, or trail riding where there is a log to hop. Just not made for fox hunting, or English jumping divisions. The seat is generously wide, 14"! The cut back is deep enough to clear withers, and keep the saddle off your horse's back. The seat and panels are padded with memory foam!
I am not taking returns on this saddle, because it is heavy to ship. I will gladly measure it against a tracing if you would like to send one to me.I will ship this saddle worldwide, but it will be expensive to ship. IT IS FINAL SALE~ NO RETURNS!!Local pickup can be arranged near Raleigh NC.These are no longer available through Hundred Oaks. The owner and sole proprietor has retired. This is the last one ever made for Hundred Oaks! It was a custom order. This is THE original Steele Equitation saddle. The tree is available for other saddlers to use, but they are now really hard to get and very expensive to order. List on this saddle is $2800 without the extras. Please ask questions, as there are absolutely no returns.
