    There is no bag; one can be attached using the eyelets and "needle" which are threaded through them.

    The cantle is opened by pushing down on the central finial. That finial is a little loose and requires a nut to reattach securely. At its widest the cantle is approx. 7" ie adult size

    Price £250 plus postage and insurance at cost
