Used Schleese Obrigado 18" Monoflap Dressage Saddle
This saddle is used but is in good condition with some signs of wear including marks from leathers and marks on billets. Two billets on each side in good shape. The thigh blocks on this monoflap are 1/2 length and adjustable via the screw. You can change the angle of the block or remove the block and replace it with another Schleese block.
The tree is currently set to what we consider to be approximately a narrow but can be adjusted prior to trial.
