For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Henri de Rivel
Model: Club Close Contact
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle for my daughter at a local tack store. It was around $450. I needed something that would fit her and her pony, and this put her into a good position.

Likes: This saddle seems to put her into a good position when she rides. It has held up well to a 6 year old toting it around, and is light enough she can carry it.

Dislikes: The leather is what you'd expect from a lower-end saddle. The billets are especially stiff, and are almost too wide for some of the lesson girths. It took a while for the leather to soften, but is much better now.

Quality: It is what it is - a very entry level saddle. The overall construction seems to be pretty good - it has held up to a lot of riding and still looks nice. it isn't the softest leather ever, but is serviceable.

Summary: This isn't a wonderful saddle, but definitely works. If you need something for a little person and are willing to work with the leather to soften it, this is a good buy.
