Stubben IMPERATOR VSD All Purpose Saddle

Brand: made by Johs. Stubben, Krefeld, Germany
Color: black and brown, fading color
Type: VSD, all purpose, emphasis dressage
Seat size: about 17,5 inches (measured from the knob beside the pommel back to the middle of the cantle).
Tree size: 29,5 (medium for higher whithers, imprinted in the right small flap).
Condition of saddle: Older saddle that has been used a lot. So it has a lot of signs and little flaws! The saddle is stil o.k. as it is and does not need a repair for its use. But it is no beauty. Some stitches are worn on edges, especially on the flaps, but they do not need to be restitched.
Leather condition: Good condition for the age, but a lot of signs of use. The saddle has a well done leather patch on the downside, see on the pictures. On the other side the leather is a bit dry and cracky, but will probably stay o.k. for much longer. If not, it could be reapaired with a patch like on the other side.
Tree: has like all Stubben saddles the flexible steel spring tree, good and sound
Billets: three on each good used condition
Pannels: a bit firmly flocked
Damages: usual signs of use for the age (like superficial scratches and cracks). I think the condition is shown well on the pictures. Good leather saddle, but no beauty.
