Stubben Tristan Schultheiss Dressage Saddle

Brand: made by Stubben, Krefeld, Germany
Model: Tristan Schultheiss. This model has no kneeblocks and a different style panels that let the shoulders move free.
Color: havanna, the panel leather has been recoloured in black which is fading away again.
Type: dressage without kneepads.
Tree size: The treesize is imprinted in the right small flap: It was probably 30 but was reprinted with 31. I would judge the saddle as on the wide side.
Seat size: 17,5 inches (measured from the knob beside the pommel back to the middle of the cantle)
Condition of saddle: The saddle has the newer blue saddle pins. But it was used a lot so it shows signs of use. Good condition, nothing to repair, usable for many more years! The saddle has flaws but they are just opitcal not functional.
Leather condition: Very good condition, usual signs of use like scratches. The saddle will look much nicer when cleaned. We just do not have time for that.
Tree: has like all Stubben saddles the steel spring tree, good and sound
Billets: good used condition, four billets on each side.
Pannels: Well flocked.
Stitchings: all good.
Damages: just usual signs of use for the age (like superficial scratches). Do not exspect a like new looking saddle, but it is very much o.k. for dayly use.
