Magic Saddle S443XL
Model: Magic Saddle S443XL
Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I was shopping for a saddle to do some light jumping in and did not want to spend a lot of money. I found this saddle on E-bay and decided to give it a try. The saddle was 2 years old when I purchased it for $500.00.
Likes: Before owning it, I was not familiar with the product line and took a chance buying it as it was in my price range. I am glad I did.
The fit is amazing! I have a thoroughbred that is ridiculously hard to fit saddles to because of his large withers. This fit him perfect with a wither pad of course. I recently bought an Arabian and the saddle fits his stocky frame and almost lack of withers. Totally different back types and it fits! The tree is a medium.
I have found the weatherproofing to be an asset as I live in FL and we have lots of humidity and pop up rain showers. I have a worry free saddle. No spotting or mold growth, great for trail riding and easy to clean! Cosmetically it is a nicer looking than other brands of synthetic types available. The leather feels thicker than regular leather.
As far as comfort for the rider, it is perfect. I have ridden in many "high end" German saddles and found the Courbette to be more comfortable. I spend about 20 hours per week in the saddle and my seat bones are never hurting after riding in this saddle.
Quality: I wish Courbette would put a bit more detail into the finish work as far a stitching towards the cantle. The leather stretched over the seat is "bunchy" not tight finished like other quality saddles. Perhaps this has to do with the waterproof leather used.
Other than that, this is my only dislike.
Summary: For the price, I feel this saddle exceeded my expectations. I am very satisfied with the quality and comfort of this product. I would certainly recommend it anyone looking for a comfortable and affordable all purpose saddle.
