2017 Black Country GPD 17.5" M General Purpose

Brand new! This saddle was custom ordered but never used, and features premium leather and panel options. The GPD is one of Black Country's most versatile models. Ideal for pleasure riding, showing, or dressage, this saddle features a straight flap to provide support for dressage and maximum shoulder freedom. Black Country describes this saddle as particularly suitable for wide horses, cobs, and other native English breeds. 

This Black Country GPD has a 17.5" seat and medium tree, with grippy Vintage leather on the flaps and skirts and buttery-soft Schrumpf leather on the seat and knee pads. Calf blocks have been added to the sweatflap. This saddle also features the "K" panel, which is designed to increase weight-bearing surface and provide additional wither clearance for horses with a high wither or lacking muscle definition.
