Sommer Oakfield Endurance -- SOLD!
This saddle has been sold!
This Sommer Oakfield Endurance saddle. Easily adjusts to fit wide to narrow horses and has wool flocking to customize fit further. Seat measures 15 3/4 inches from inside pommel on top of seat straight back to cantle ridge -- Will fit similar to 16" western saddle.
I bought this saddle to fit my wide-barreled Arab mare. Her wide rib cage (from 2 foals) made all saddles slip up on her withers. No combination of pommel pads, shims, tacky pads and girths worked. Finally, I found that dressage saddles with the "v" girth configuration would stay in place. BUT my very stiff and very sore hips would not let my legs fit down into the knee blocks. This saddle solved every problem. It adjusted to fit her beautifully, the medium gullet setting and English billets fit her, AND a deep supportive seat yet narrow thru the twist let my legs rest where they needed to be and my hips were not spread. I eventually gave in to the hips and had both hips replaced :0 I now ride a tiny paso fino which this saddle is too long for -- It measures 24".
Easy to adjust! Takes 5 minutes or less. Unscrew the bolts in front and rear, remove the pads, you have 3 settings, narrow, med, wide or you can mix and match, making the front wide and the back medium for example. Put the 2 screws back in and away you go.The pads are shaped to allow for shoulder freedom. You can read about the unique features of this saddle on the Sommer website.
Asking $850 plus actual shipping costs. (Shipping from Massachusetts.) Saddle cost over $2,000 new, so this is an awesome price for a saddle in great shape!
