17" RL Watson / Rocking R Flex Panel Saddle *RARE*

Estimated price for orientation: 1 500 $

Category: Saddles

Saddle Size: 17"

Don't miss an opportunity to own a rare, hard to find , RL Watson saddle in this style! I have 4 Watson saddles, and I'm not riding enough anymore to justify keeping them all. This is my favorite model, I have 2 of them. You won't find a more padded seat and comfortable saddle than this! It is a RECLINER on horseback! I had a freak accident at the beginning of a ride a few years ago, fell off and broke my tail bone, and got back on my horse - I still rode 8 hours in the mountains in my other Watson saddle that is exactly like this! Yes, with a broken tail bone! There is NO tree, so it doesn't have a specific gullet measurement or tree size. These saddles are amazing and fit nearly every horse! Short, tall, wide, narrow, high withers, no withers - this saddle fits! Watson saddles have 2 "flex" panels that are bolted to the seat and move with the horse's movement. No pinching or white hairs with this saddle! The seat has SO much padding it's hard to measure. It is a 16-17" seat. RL Watson is deceased now, so these amazing saddles are hard to find - especially in this super padded, recliner, Western style! This is a western style with trail stirrups, adjustable 3 point rigging (already set, you don't have to tie it yourself, see picture), and brass fittings.
