Used Bates Caprilli Close Contact Saddle for sale. Rare-Flocked panels!

This is a used Bates Caprilli Close Contact Saddle.  I had the CAIR panels replaced with Flocked panels, and love the results!  Not all horses respond well to the CAIR panels, so the flocking is a great, and RARE, alternative.   I have ridden in this saddle just a few times since I got it reflocked and one time it was squeaky.  The saddler assured me the tree is sound.  I am assuming the squeak will disappear altogether with use.

It has a 16 1/2 ” seat and long flaps ideal for longer legged riders.  It has the adjustable gullet system, with the white-extra wide gullet currently installed.   It is in good used condition- I rode it to several year-end high point horse show titles last year.  It has a great “bomber jacket” type patina which seems to “absorb” scratches and dings.

I am asking $1000.oo or best reasonable offer.
