Seat is stamped 18″ however it measures closer to 17.5″, flaps measure 14″ bar to bottom and 14″ across (forward “X” flaps) ,the front gullet measures 4 3/4″ -medium/wide tree.
2009 MODEL. If you like very soft saddles where you can just about roll the flaps this one is for you. The leather almost has a buttery feel to it and the outer pads are very soft and squishy so your knees sink right into them. The saddle has no tears, no loose stitching, and the seat looks great. The bottom panels are actually in perfect condition and still very full (a lot of Tad saddles get hard flat panels cover time but this one is nice and soft) Front panels are nice and thin and flexible so if you have a wider shoulder horse or pony with minimal withers these seem to fit great. Saddle has both small front and back blocks. This is one of the nicest Tad Coffin saddles we have had in the tack shop and it was well taken care of. Don’t let the 2009 age scare you on this one because it looks better than most newer models.
