Whitman's Avante Curvet All-Purpose Saddle 16", Medium-Wide Tree, Free Shipping, SOLD Offered for sale is a beautiful Avante Curvet all-purpose saddle with a 16" seat. Made of quality grained havana leather. Medium-wide tree fits most horses. The flaps are set somewhat forward for an all-purpose saddle, which allows a wide range in stirrup length and thus accommodates even leggy riders. Great saddle for both growing children or small adults. Incredibly comfortable and well-balanced. The Avante line was distributed by Whitman Saddlery, once a division of Miller's. According to Whitman Saddlery, the Avante Curvet features "wool stuffed panels, artfully designed padded flaps over well shaped knee roll, double ply chrome billets, on a reinforced, medium depth tree." The quality of Avante saddles is easily on par with Collegiates and Thornhills. This saddle is much nicer than the price suggests. The saddle has been used only a handful of times and is not even broken in yet. It has a few faint scuffs on the pommel and cantle, likely from storage or shipping, but otherwise it shows virtually no signs of wear. It's just not quite wide enough for my incredibly wide lesson pony. This is a bargain, as these saddles are often selling used at twice the price. Shipping is free in the continental U.S.! Asking $225. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Thanks for looking!
