      Barely used, just 1 month old 15.5" Sensation Ride Westlish Rebel Hybrid Sport Saddle perfect for trail or endurance riding. This is literally the most comfortable saddle I have ever ridden in. Unfortunately due to an injury and other life circumstances I am forced to sell, my loss can be your gain. This saddle still has that new leather smell because it's had barely any miles on it.
     The Westlish Rebel model is completely unique and conforms to no tradition. The name itself says it all. It's for the rider that is neither just Western or just English, but prefers the best of both worlds. The flap on the Westlish Rebel is ideally suited to the English flap and standard stitch lines. While the western seat and seat jockeys add to the feeling of riding a substantial saddle. The seat is flat, open, roomy and nicely cushioned for rider comfort. The knee roll is average with a removable knee block attached under the knee roll. Rings located at the rear and sides of the seat create attachment areas for cantle packs and/or water bottle holders for convenience on the trail. Front rings are for attaching a breastcollar and carry handle or grab strap. I customized this saddle by using heavy smooth black leather, making it more durable for endurance riding and long use yet easy to match when and if you need to order replacement parts.  I shortened the flap, because I'm a shorter rider and the standard flap is very long in my opinion. I believe this shortened flap will still fit an average rider very well. I added the hard-use stirrup configuration. I upgraded to poron foam for durability, comfort and it does better in wetter climates. I also added rear D rings. I changed the seat stitch pattern to the hybrid stitch pattern because it keeps the foam more supple. I upgraded all of the rings to stainless steel.
      The Westlish Rebel model Sensation meets the needs of the rider who wants the western “feel” but the comfort and close contact that the Sensation saddle is known for. This model is designed with the sporty, minimalistic rider in mind. It offers a secure, deep seat feeling similar to the shape of a traditional western saddle, only much lighter and more comfortable for you and your horse. This saddle with customization was $2240 new, and is almost new now, save yourself some money and a 6 month wait for Nickers to make this saddle for you by buying from me. It's a tremendous saddle and if I were rich I would keep it. Feel free to email me if you have any questions. Please check out my other listings for unique new, gently used and vintage items.
