Jumping Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: HDR
Model: A/O
Category: Jumping Saddles

Purchase: I bought this HDR locally, at Staples Feed and Tack center, for $537. My clydesdale has been with out a saddle for a few months, when i tried the HDR line. I was a bit picky figuring nothing would fit him anyways. It needed to be shimmed to balance out and slid slightly when cantered. But, it actually FIT his broad withered back. (for the most part) so i returned the demo and for months to come could find nothing that would even come close to being able to tweak. Until one night i decided to go back to Stapleys and try another model. it was the same saddle as before (which i was un-aware)but with a Mattes pad it fits GREAT, and a breast plate for jumping just in case it fits him perfect.

Likes: Ive had this saddle on trial for about a month now so i cannot care for the leather, but it was a newer demo, and not very broken in. The seat was very squishy and comfortable. While i stand 5'7 the 16'5 fit me perfectly. This saddle completely frees up my horses range of movement and unlike in his old saddle, he feels like a 4 star dressage horse to which i can mold any way i'd like. :)

Dislikes: I do not show unless its locally at our barn, so i do not need anything expensive. But the leather does slightly darken when conditioned, and kind've got a stain in the pommel, but what do i care. it'll look worse in years to come, as long as it fits i'm happy. The HDR leathers squeek considerably after conditioned, but this will go away with usage.

Quality: The construction is great, it is the only saddle i could find where wide actually meant WIDE. Not medium wide, great for big shouldered horses as drafts or warm bloods.

Summary: Bottom line i am soo in love with my new saddle. i would absolutely recommend this saddle to anyone who is looking to show or just ride for fun. Trust me, you will not be disappointed. :)
