Intrepid International Gold Deluxe Close Contact Exchangeable Gullet Saddle
Intrepid Gold Close Contact Saddles have been a great success ever since they were introduced in 2003. This saddle fits nearly all horse/rider combinations right off the rack! This new model features brushed rich brown, grained calfskin leather with protective wear leathers at the bottom of the flaps.
Panels are synthetic "wool" flocked. Synthetic wool is being used more and more by higher end saddles (such as Pessoa) because it is much more resilient and lasts longer. There is less balling up and lumpy hard spots with the synthetic wool flocking. Since it does not pack or break down like natural wool, resulting in a hard panel, the saddle will need re-flocking less often.
The New Intrepid Gold saddle also has the IGP (Interchangeable Gullet Plate) System, making it more adjustable to different horses as needed and able to fit your horse within minutes. It is shipped with a medium width gullet in place. We also offer your choice of two additional gullet plate sizes for FREE. That's about $100. in free product. Additionally, we will switch out plates until we get your fit just right should we pick the wrong sizes.
Additional Gullet plates can also be purchased here:
Available in sizes 16” through 18”
If you send me rider’s height, weight, inseam and upper thigh circumference, I can calculate recommended seat size for this saddle.
Also, if you send me back pictures, I can evaluate your horses back and topline to make sure the Arwen tree shape and panels are the right choice for you horse's conformation.
