To my dismay, last fall I discovered that my beloved Black Country Tex Eventer is slightly too small for me. It is 17", but it has extra-forward flaps and I thought that was enough to accommodate my very long hip-to-knee measurement. Saddle fitter Kate Wooten, however, burst my bubble. She thought that having a larger seat size would reduce my tendency to pivot on my knee over fences.
Fast forward to now, when I have ordered the exact same saddle in 18", and with gold welting around the seat (can't forget the gold welting!). As much as I adore my current Tex Eventer (it came to me via a dear friend), I must rehome it so that I can afford the new one. So here are the details:
Black Country Tex Eventer (non-monoflap), 17", medium wide with extra-forward flaps. Perfect for long-legged riders. Wither gussets, trapezius panels. brown Vintage leather. Excellent condition. Asking $1700.
And here are some photos:
I've enjoyed many spectacular rides with this saddle between Taco and me. Who knows, it might be infused with Magic Taco Dust!
