Horse Tack Review


Paris Tack
Lafitte Close Contact Saddle
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Paris Tack
Model: Lafitte Close Contact Saddle
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle for $375 on tackwholesale.com

Likes: This saddle is extremely comfortable. The knee rolls are just the right size,, and the padded flaps are very comfy. The tree is sound, and the saddle is beautiful. I like how there is an extra flap of leather on the back of the cantle. Even my instructor, who used to believe strongly in HDR's likes this saddle.

Dislikes: This saddle is built more for people with longer thighs, or else your leg position doesn't align with the padded flaps. I ordered a 16.5, which is what I normally ride in, and the seat seemed a bit small, so if you are considering purchasing this, I suggest you order half a size larger than what you normally ride in.

Quality: The tree is very durable, and the leather is very soft. The padded flaps are EXTREMELY fluffy, which I love.

Summary: WARNING:when the saddle arrived at my house, it didn't look like the website picture. It is still very beautiful, but it is slightly different than the picture. Overall, I recommend this saddle to anyone looking for a good close contact.
