90 degree angle to the gullet

Extra tall pommel

The spine of the bottom round skirt has been trimmed away to leave a more open channel for the lumbar spine, which gives lots of room for a horse with a short back, and/or big hips for making tight turns. I really like this feature, because I've seen the lacing on the rear skirts sometimes dig into the lumbar spine on some horses.

Total saddle length: 25"
Color: Chestnut, drum dyed Herman Oak American tanned 13 OZ. leather
