    **REDUCED PRICE!!* *New photos added**

    I absolutely LOVE this saddle!! I would not ever be selling it if it fit my new horse :( I just bought it in May of this year then bought the new horse in August...
    This saddle is very comfortable, very balanced, great for trail riding or arena work as it really keeps you in your seat and working with the horse. My mare got spooked and spun on the trail a couple weeks ago and I lost my stirrup but thanks to the knee rolls on this saddle I stayed perfectly with her - it was awesome!
    I'm totally bummed to sell it but I need to in order to afford to buy a new saddle for the new horse :)

    Details:
    -2011 model Clinton Anderson saddle by Martin Saddlery
    -14" Aussie/15" Western
    -Brown roughout seat
    -Includes matching back cinch
    -Signed by Clinton Anderson

    -Will ad gullet measurement ASAP, I believe it is considered a semi QH bars saddle but it doesn't seem to pinch as much as most SQH saddles...


    On my mare (other equipment (cinch, sheepskin, etc -not included) - photo taken (9/23/11)

    I love love love this saddle! I have tried riding my new mare in it for the past 6 weeks with all different types of pads, shims etc to make it work but I'm not being fair to her - Boo! Everyone I have talked to who owns one of these saddles absolutely loves it!!

    It is sad but I refuse to ride a horse in a saddle that gives her dry spots :(
    It fits Izzy (my other mare) great - that's who I originally bought it for, but I have another saddle that also fits her well and I can't afford to have a nice saddle like this sitting around with no saddle for the new mare... sigh... come on lotto, isn't it my time to win yet?! haha

    Man, if this saddle fit one of my horses and I had a different saddle too, the different saddle would be the one I would be selling. Love Martin saddles. They are delish!

    This is killing me.....my friend owns one of these saddles and it fits my horse and I perfectly.....BUT I'm already almost saved up for my XC/jump saddle. I can only get one. Either the jump or the western. I'm looking to do some low level eventing (I already have the dressage saddle) and I'm in need of a jump saddle if I want to improve. HOWEVER, I've always known I wanted to get a CA saddle for our day long trail rides, etc. *holds head in hands* Urgh!!!


    ETA: Just saw that you are in CA, I think I'll pass for now. Thanks though. :D

    Downunder calls it a 14"
    I am selling this saddle over the other saddle because it is worth so much more than the circle y synthetic and gaited saddles for my new horse are expensive :( I wish I could find a way to keep them all!
