Close Contact Saddles



Manufacturer: Henri De Rivel
Model: Presidente Rivella Close Contact
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought this used at a tack store with all the fittings for $500, which is a great deal when the saddle retails for $900-$1000 new.

Likes: The saddle is extremely comfortable for me, and the wide tree fit my QH perfectly. The leather is very supple, and the two-tone color makes it great for showing. I store my saddle at the barn with just a thin saddle color, and even with -20 degree weather the leather doesn't crack.

Dislikes: The leather shows wear from the leathers easily, and it's really hard to find accessories with matching leather color.

Quality: The leather feels like high quality leather, without paying $4000+ for it. I love the shape of the saddle, it makes it very easy to transition from jumping to flat work. The only thing I would warn about is that the seat runs a bit small, I usually use a 16" but my HDR is a 17" and fits me, so if you can get a size up from your normal.

Summary: This is the most comfortable saddle I've ever sat it, and fits my horse really well. This saddle is also really easy to care for, and still looks great after being at the barn during every kind of extreme in the weather.
