Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Collegiate
Model: Alumni Close Contact
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle on Ebay for $460 and free shipping. I thought it was a good deal so I bought it. It was practically new with only a few rides on it.

Likes: I really like the knee rolls, how they are very soft and squishy. The saddle seemed very well balanced, and didn't have to be broken in at all. The leather was good quality and I haven't used the gullet system yet but the medium tree size fits my horses well.

Dislikes: I liked everything about this saddle.

Quality: The leather is full grain on the flaps and smooth leather on the seat and knee rolls. It seemed well built and doesn't give my horse a sore back ever. The flocking is even and balances the saddle well. The leather is new but not stiff, and I don't think it had to be broken in at all.

Summary: I loved this saddle. I would recommend it to anybody- even if they had to pay full price for it. It was well worth the money I paid, and I would buy it again. This saddle lists for around $1200, but it seems like it is at least as well built as saddles for a lot more. I don't think the Collegiate quality has gone down at all, I think it has gotten better!
