I bought this Courbette secondhand in 1983 with my first ever paycheck. It is a true all purpose saddle of that era with its deep seat, suede padded flap, knee rolls and a round cantle complete with crupper ring. Because it is a pony saddle, it has a shorter flap than its adult sized counterparts.
I rode in this saddle all through my teenage years and its sentimental value is extreme. It's monetary value, on the other hand, is close to zero. The top of the saddle still looks ok, but you can see thirty years worth of wear and tear in the panels and billets.This next tack set may not be as exciting or impressive as the Charro package, but I have a feeling that it just may be my favorite order of the year!
