Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I had found out about Duett through the Practical Horseman board and sent Nancy a wither tracing and my measurements. After trying multiple saddles of hers that I thought I would like, she suggested I try this one. Out the door, it was $1274.
Likes: Super grippy leather in the seat and the knee pads. It has a medium deep (and wider) seat that makes it easy to sit down and be comfortable. Fabulous padding in the seat and knee pad area. Leather is durable and smells wonderful. No flaws in stitching whatsoever. It puts me in perfect balance on the flat and while jumping. I feel like I can do absolutely anything in this saddle.
Dislikes: Absolutely nothing!
Quality: The leather is soft in the seat and the knee pads. Thicker and more durable on the flaps and the billets. There is an extra portion of leather similar to the SR panels on the County saddles that allows for more flocking to be added if need be. The stitching is beautiful.
Summary: This is an absolutely wonderful saddle that you can customize without breaking the bank. Nancy works hard to make both horse and rider happy. I have gotten tons of complements on my saddle since I bought it in March. A friend of mine who has had the same trouble in fitting her horse with an English saddle has also ordered one after riding in mine. I would recommend Duett to anyone who has a horse that takes a 32cm tree or larger!
