Passier Antares 17.5" Medium

Very good condition! This saddle is a fantastic find. This is a 2003 Passier Antares. The saddle is extremely well constructed and comfortable, covered with incredibly supple black calfskin leather. The leather is quite shiny (as appears in the photos) but remains very soft--no slippery feel in this saddle! 

The Antares model is made to Passier's exacting standards. With a shallower curve to the pommel and cantle, the seat is comfortable and non-restrictive, and promotes a classically correct position for the rider.
