Rare opportunity to own a much sought-after County saddle. This is a very reluctant sale, however as I'm very unlikely to ever ride again, I've decided that I'd love to see someone to own and enjoy this saddle for many more years to come.

This saddle is AMAZING to ride in. Incredibly soft and supple, this saddle is 33 years old and is the real deal. Knee rolls are incredibly supple.
Serial number indicates year of manufacture as 1985. I have owned this saddle since 1999, has been carefully stored since 2012.

Currently fitted with long points which creates a beautiful close fit with your horse – so close I used to be able to feel my horse’s heartbeat on occasion!

In great condition. Will need a little bit of touch up stitching where the stirrup leather sits over the knee flap stitching, as it has worn away, but this should be expected from a 33yr old saddle!
Otherwise in excellent condition – always regularly cleaned and conditioned, and loved!
Super dark brown - NOT BLACK!

I find that this saddle always put me in a great position - I won multiple state Rider titles (Rider of the Year/VASA etc) in this saddle, including going Top 5 at the Grand Nationals.

Includes a set of stirrup leathers and a set of stirrup irons with white treads. Great for paddock riding/everyday riding however probably not the greatest for showing (although I did use them in rider classes etc).

Comes with matching, full leather deep brown girth (measuring 66cm from buckle to buckle) which includes buckle for tie down strap on flap. This fit my 14.1hh Riding Pony perfectly. Nice and supple and 'worn in'.

Also includes a saddle cover that is lined and has holes for the stirrup leathers. This is great for riding in light rain or just simply protecting the saddle during every day riding, and storage.
