Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle brand new at Dover Saddlery about a year ago for exactly 3,000 (now 3,200) U.S dollars. I know it is a bit expensive, but you will thank it later.
Likes: I love the color!!! It comes in a caramel looking color. I have gotten so many comments about how good it looks. I also like the comfort. I can take it on long trail rides without discomfort. And it even gets good marks in the show ring! It puts your legs in proper position for jumping, and is extremely comfortable over jumps.I use it on multile horses and it fits on all of them. I use it on my Thoroughbred Stallion, my Quarter Horse Mare, my Hungarian Warmblood Gelding and my Fjord mare without any problem. I jump my horses at 4 feet high and have no problems with the saddle slipping backwards. I even use it on a high withered Arabian.
Dislikes: Love this saddle!!! Have not found any problems with it.
Quality: Excellent quality! Made with an adjustable tree and the leather is from Italy, making it a high quality leather. I broke this saddle in in just two short weeks. I use this saddle everyday, and the leather has not faded or worn out. This saddle has godd grip to it so you don't slide around.
Summary: This wil explain the rest. This is the description that Dover has on this saddle. Adjustable tree design. Developed in collaboration with Olympian Nona Garson.Made in Italy. In keeping with the Prestige tradition, the Nona Garson Elite offers riders the very best in construction, materials and performance. Latex integrated panels allow closer contact. Italian calfskin assures excellent grip, and the flap is reinforced at the base with stronger, thicker leather for longer wear. Softly padded seat is slightly wider for security and comfort. Anatomic knee rolls and smaller rear thigh blocks provide security while jumping larger fences. Tree sizes 32 cm, 33 cm or 34 cm. Seat sizes, 16", 17", 18".
