How dear is this saddle! Phillip Fontaine is made by the makers of Stubben, so you know it is of craftsmanship and class. This saddle is butter soft, sticky, and modern that will serve you well in any arena. Its a true 17.5, with a narrow twist and wider seat that is quite secure. It has forward flaps that measure 13.5 for a moderate leg rider. It has a fairly substantial knee roll and offers velcro for thigh blocks. Imagine jumping in this beauty! It has a MW gullet that measures just shy of 5″ with generous clearance as well. Please note, it is missing a keeper on the near side. You can’t go wrong with this beauty at $899.
