Jaguar
Stirrup Leathers
English Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Jaguar
Model: Stirrup Leathers
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I got these from an Ebay auction. I've seen them in catalogs from $145.00 to $169.00. I paid $68.00. They were brand new in the package with tags. I was so curious why these leathers were SO expensive.

Likes: Well, first off I liked the price of the ones I bought. I like the idea of no stretch and the buckle fits nicely under the stirrup bar.

Dislikes: They are very BULKY! They are also very stiff during the initial break-in period. Also, I ride 3-4 times a week and I do a lot of jumping. The leather very quickly has shown signs of wear. I don't know if they will outlast my regular leathers.

Quality: These leathers are made from a nylon core covered with soft, high quality French calf leather. The nylon core, which is the reason they don't stretch, is what makes them very thick under the leg and very stiff when new. The buckles are designed to lay flat on the stirrup bar and to not interfere with the rider's leg.

Summary: I am so glad I did NOT pay the going retail price for these. I will use them and do feel secure with them for galloping and jumping work. However I don't feel the Jaguar leathers will outlast my old, regular leathers. I used them for around 8 years, they only cost around $45.00 and were much more comfortable.
