Close Contact Saddles



Manufacturer: Collegiate
Model: Finalist
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I got this saddle for my birthday at a local tack store brand new for $545.00!

Likes: I absolutely Love Love Love every part of this saddle! The quality is amazing! This saddle was broken in and was shown in two weeks after I got it! It is very comfortable, I have even rode in it on the trails. My riding has gotten so much better since I started riding in it! It positions my long legs perfectly. Love the velcro knee block, made the saddle fit me perfect. Also fits my horse too!

Dislikes: The only thing I don't like is that after I got used to riding in this saddle I could no longer ride in my Wintec 500 any more! I can feel every movement my horse makes in this saddle, my wintec made me feel disconnected! (But thats not really a bad thing!)

Quality: The quality is great! Love how fast it broke in! I gave it a deep clean when I first bought it and I oil it once every week and it has kept it looking amazing! Some people said that the color rubbed off from the leathers, but what saddle does not?! If you take care of it then it is not a problem at all! I usually ride in this saddle at least two hours a day 6 days a week, and it has kept up with me! Matching leathers are not hard to find for it, I got mine from Jeffersequine.com. My trainer even commented that she is considering purchasing one for herself!

Summary: This is a fantastic saddle! I would recommend it to every one! I am even planning on purchasing a second one soon!
