2015 Antares Close Contact Saddle. Serial # E, SC, 17.5, AO, 3N, Full Calfskin Leather, Brown, 2+2 Blocks, Knee Rolls M10 T1 Custom DTA50 Panels
Dark chocolate brown. Leather is buttery soft and very "grippy." SC (slightly curved) seat - sooooo comfy!
This saddle is in pristine condition! Use for just 3 months - ridden in very lightly (3 - 4 x week and only on one horse). Purchased new from Antares in France in Fall 2015.
Full calfskin leather on entire saddle! Feels amazing! This is by far the most comfortable, well-balanced saddle I have ever sat in. The DTA 50 panels are a custom option that allow a more even distribution of weight across the horse's back.
I paid $5,100 for this saddle new - and that was with a 15% trainer's discount so the price should have been $5,865 (+ tax)
I have a copy of my original purchase receipt and can share with anyone who messages me.
