SIDE SADDLES FOR SALE
For Sale on Behalf of Owner: Australian made Matt Kelly Side Saddle
Built on an Aulton & Butler tree (which are modelled off a wide Owen tree) with a Mayhew style stirrup fitting. This saddle is just beautiful having had very minimal use and its condition is evident of this.
Measuring 16" from cutback to cantle and 20" from front of fixed head to cantle. The seat is 12" across at the widest point. Measuring 8" from d-ring to d-ring and 16" between bottom of short and long points. Approx. 2.5-3" wide channel. I have placed this saddle on my 17hh WB x ISH who normally wears a medium wide-wide gullet astride saddle. With some flocking adjustments it would fit her nicely.
Outside offside girthing, suede seat and pommels and removable leaping head cover. The saddle comes fully mounted with stirrup leather and iron as well as two matching 3 fold leather girths measuring 50"/127cm and 43"/110cm respectively buckle to buckle. Each girth complete with its own balance girth/strap as well.
This saddle has been professionally cleaned, oiled and conditioned. The saddle is darkening in colour with oiling and I would suspect it will continue to do so for those who may be put off by it’s brighter brown colour. Not very often do saddles of this condition pop up for sale in Australia. A rarity to find a side saddle that is very much show ring ready. Well priced at $2300 AUD + postage or pick up. Delivery a possibility with reason.
Saddle is currently located in Broadford, Victoria 3658 and preference given to within state buyers.
