The A5 is the Tad Coffin original model, and is a classic close contact saddle with a beautiful balance, low pommel and flatter seat. The tree is slightly wider than the TC2 It is ideal for use on horses with broader backs and lower withers but can also be used with success on horses with higher withers with the appropriate quarter pads.
Standard flaps measure 13 1/4" long by 13" wide. Dot to dot measures 5". Front and back blocks.
Leather, seams and stitching are all in outstanding condition and have been meticulously maintained. However, panels have been compressed and we would recommend riding with a quarter pad in order to provide the necessary shock absorption. Alternatively this saddle is in such fantastic condition that a Tad Coffin aficionado could consider just having the panels replaced by Tad.
