I didn't think to take a before picture as the saddle was simply dusty. After cleaning and conditioning it though, I remembered what a pretty saddle it actually is and wished that I had a before picture to show you.
This saddle is designed for the rider that desires a balanced equitation seat. It is built on their famous endurance tree with their unique suspended ground seat. Padded with Tucker's Gel-Cush™ Padding, it comes with English Stirrup leathers, Trail Glide™ stirrups and English billet rigging. Also features the Equi-Balanced Tree, 1/2" Wool Felt lined skirts & beautiful master craftsmanship. It features English-styled strategically positioned knee rolls with padded flaps.
I know it's a shame to let such a nice quality saddle sit unused, especially when I know several people who would very much like to have it. It took me a lot of soul searching before I was willing to part with my other Tucker saddle. I liked that saddle a lot, but I couldn't see two saddles sitting around gathering dust. I am not interested in doing any long trail rides right now, but who know what I'll be doing in the next few years? Good pieces of tack are worth holding onto.
For those of you with extra saddles sitting around, how long do you let them sit before passing them on to a new owner?
