Luc Childeric
Model M Saddle
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Luc Childeric
Model: Model M Saddle
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I got this saddle thru a friend of a friend for around $2,000. It was a spectacular deal for such a great saddle in such good shape.

Likes: This is easily the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden in, topping the Pessoas and Devacoux's I've ridden in. I adore the knee rolls on this, and the seat allows the perfect amount of grip.

Dislikes: It gets scratched very easily, so its not something you can just throw around. Another minor thing is that its rather hard for me to put my leg back properly with the larger thigh block, though it is also beneficial for jumping.

Quality: This is a VERY high quality saddle, and for the price it should be. Its original price is what it should be for the quality of this saddle. It fits both me and my horse very well, and I'm very happy that the calfskin seat doesn't pick up the dye from my jeans and slowly start turning the pommel and seat blue like I've had happen with previous saddles.

Summary: All in all this is an EXCELLENT saddle, it's unbeatable in both quality and rider stability. I am finally able to sit my 17.3h thoroughbred's extremely large stride thanks to the superior amount of grip that this seat has, but it allows me to 2 point freely when it comes to jumping. I HIGHLY recommend this saddle for any rider looking for high comfort for both them and their horse.
