I am selling a very nice authentic SHARON SAARE ENDURANCE SADDLE with horn. The saddle is built on a wooden tree that is fiberglass covered tree, 16 seat and DD width (WIDE). This is one the most comfortableWestern style saddles I have ever ridden in. Please see link below for more information regarding tree sizes. Sadly, does not fit my current horse.

This saddle has seen some use. The leather is soft and supple with a very nice patina, slightly darkened in the usual areas. The tree is absolutely solid,there are no worn through or thin spots on the leather. No cracking on the leather. The rigging is dropped style, seat is nicely padded, with a comfortable narrow twist. Many rings, and loops, clips and strings for attaching gear. Fenders are a bit on the shorter side, but do lengthen out enough for the average adult. There are also 3 holes on the lower part of the fenders. Please see the pics. Not noticeable at all, but wanted to mention it.Some nicks and bumps from normal use, NOTHING excessive. Comes with a leather near side latigo and a nylon off side latigo.Cinch not included. The saddle has received a light cleaning, but would benefit from a deep cleaning.
Overall, a very nice, comfortably broken-in saddle. I really wish it fit my current horse and it wouldnt go anywhere!!!
New, these saddles are pretty spendy. This one will go to the highest buyer at no where near the cost of new.
Also, pleasesee my other listing. I am thinning my equine library and there are SEVERAL EXCELLENT RESOUCE BOOKS for sale. Check 'em out!!! Free shipping on books with purchase of saddle.

Regarding the length of the stirrup leathers, from the center of the seat to the tread on the actual stirrup:
On the shortest setting ( a couple of holes added) is 28 inches.
On the longest setting, ( it looks as though they may have been shortened a bit) is 36 1/2 inches.
Will be adding a 15 inch Crates show saddle very soon.
