For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Norman Saddle Mfg., Inc.
Model: Norman Supreme Show Saddle
Category: English Miscellaneous

Purchase: Three of these saddles have been purchased form Terry Bennett's Tack of Harrisonville, MO, by customers at the barn I work at. They paid $1495.00 for the 21" saddles and $1575.00 for the 22" saddle. One lady purchased the saddle as her first saddle, the other two were purchased as replacement saddles for a Crosby whose tree did not fit the horse it was being used on and a Whitman which was the wrong seat size for the rider using it.

Likes: I have worked with Saddlebreds and Arabians as a groom and assistant trainer for 7 years and was very dissapointed when the Whitman saddle was no longer being made. I understand that these Norman saddles are being made by former Whitman employees who are making the Norman in the same design as the Whitman. The Whitmans made the last couple of years that they were still made were not of the same quality as older Whitmans. The new Norman saddles are of excellant quality and I highly recomend them. I especially like the seat design of these saddles, they are one of the more comfortable saddle seat saddles to ride in.

Dislikes: The tree on these saddle tends to run wide, so if you have a narrow horse this might not be the right saddle for you. Also on the adjustable stirrup bar models the stirrup bars need to be checked regularly as the position can move by itself.

Quality: The leather is of good quality and durability, unlike some other manfacturers who use soft grippy leather that quickly wears out with any amount of riding. The memory panel sytem was very innovative when Whitman first came out with it and is still proving itslef superior to traditional saddle seat saddle panels which break down over time.

Summary: I love riding in this saddle and its features combined with its price make it hard to beat!
