Stabilizer Saddle
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: County Saddlery
Model: Stabilizer Saddle
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I tried this barely-used saddle at Jake's Place in Petaluma, CA. It was size 17, with a regular tree, the dark chocolate color. It was in almost perfect condition, and I bought it for $1850, a very good price for a $2800 saddle.

Likes: I loved this saddle! I had been trying numerous saddles before this one, but the momewnt my rear-end hit the seat of the Stabilizer, I knew this was the one. It is the most comfortable saddle I have ever ridden in, especially the seat. It had padded flaps, pencil knee rolls (I think). It also matched my dark brown and white paint beautifully! I love the leather quality; it is very supple and soft. It was an AMAZING find!

Dislikes: There is absolutely NOTHING I don't like about this saddle (so far).

Quality: It has a spring tree that has fit all the horses I've tried it on, from my high-withered TB mare to a short, stocky QH. Again, I love the leather. Though I bought the saddle used, the leather showed no wear, even from the stirrup leathers.

Summary: Overall, I would recommend this saddle to anyone wityh a higher budget (though this is not a Devoucoux or Antares)and a very comfortable ride. I use this saddle in hunters, and it is perfect!
