Nicely suited for hunter or equitation disciplines, the Collegiate Close Contact Saddle features a narrow twist and traditional padded flaps in full-grain European leather. Flaps are beautifully accented with subtle contrast stitching. Front and rear blocks attach with hook-and-loop fasteners so that they can be positioned to your personal preference or removed altogether. This saddle has the EASY-CHANGE Gullet System and flocked panels, allowing you to fit it to your horse's conformation. The EASY-CHANGE Gullet System lets you alter the width of the gullet by swapping out gullet plates to achieve the most comfortable fit over your horse's withers and shoulders. The system is measurable, easy to use and gullet plates can be changed as your horse develops. Includes a medium gullet. Collegiate saddles have always represented great quality and traditional design at a competitive price. Collegiate Convertible saddles build on this tradition with the addition of the EASY-CHANGE Gullet System. Collegiate is a proud sponsor of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association.
