Crosby Dressage Saddle, “Robert Dover” Freestyle II For Sale

This is a wonderful, old style Crosby Dover Freestyle II.  It has a 17 1/2″ seat, medium tree that fits very generously, more like a medium wide, and narrow twist.  The molded flap and concealed thigh blocks allow you to sustain a correct, effective seat  and close feel without locking you in place like so many modern, overpadded saddles.  Slightly forward flaps accommodate the long-legged rider.

Saddle is in good used condition. Stitching is tight, leather is soft and conditioned. The panels are soft, smooth and even.

There are some minor scratches and markings on the back of the cantle from old nameplates.  The seat shows some discoloration, which is not evident when you are riding, as do the underside of the sweat flaps.  All of the marks are cosmetic and don’t affect the function or comfort of the saddle at all.

Billets are nylon reinforced with leather stitched on either side.  There is one section that has loose stitching, though still perfectly safe and not stretched due to the nylon.

The tree is sound and the billets are tight, the saddle is ready to ride and certainly clean enough for showing.

I am asking $850 or best reasonable offer.
