SOLD 9/3/17. 21” Stalker Nafey, made in England, 4 position adjustable bars. Deep seat with square cantle. Medium tree like an regular Barnsby or a Lovatt & Ricketts medium. Lovely smooth waxed bridle leather; no slick acrylic on this. Smooth seat. Exactly 21” nail to cantle, and 17” from the cutback straight back to the cantle. Not oversized. It’s a traditional old-style 21”. This saddle has been gently used. It’s in excellent condition.... (read more) Stalker Nafey was an importer of English saddles, and I believe handled the Barnsby line in the '80s.
8 single thickness billets, all fantastic condition. Both stirrup bars move freely and lock in all 4 positions. The flaps and skirts are not slick. Panels appear to be a combination of wool felt with a layer of foam that may have hardened. The panels are a bit stiff but not deteriorated or anything. Has never has a nameplate.
The leather has some abrasion and crazing in the wear areas, as to be expected with a used saddle. There are some light cat claw pick marks on the seat, (See Imagur album.) It’s not perfect, but it’s nice enough for show and has the much-desired adjustable bars.
NEW LEATHERS & IRONS ARE INCLUDED, BUT NOT SHOWN.
