Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Crosby
Model: Prix des Nations
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: It is a 17.5 inch with a regular tree. I got this saddle second hand. It was new and had never been ridden in, but had been damaged (a cut in the seat leather). I got it for $100 and then sent it to be repaired by a crosby saddle maker. I do not remember how much the repair was, but was minimal compared to the cost of a new one. They put a patch on the seat and it looks like it was meant to be there.

Likes: It is a great saddle for jumping. It puts me right into a great position. I like the fact that it does not have a lot of padding and lets me feel the horse under me. It is a plain flap model and I personally like that style.

Dislikes: I got this saddle about 15 years ago. While it is still in great serviceable shape, when I went to find a new one of the same model (in a different tree size) I found that they don't seem to make the plain flap anymore. I guess it is just out of style. I guess I would also say I dislike the fact that someone cut the saddle, but then I would not have gotten such a good deal on it. Also, that has nothing to do with the model of the saddle.

Quality: It is very well made. The saddle is perfectly balanced and the leather is of great quality.

Summary: Great saddle wish they still made ones in the plain flap.
