Thornhill
Germania 2-phase (36cm/extra wide tree)
Jumping Saddles



Manufacturer: Thornhill
Model: Germania 2-phase (36cm/extra wide tree)
Category: Jumping Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle from a member of the Horse Grooming Supplies forums. I paid $750 for the saddle, plus shipping from the USA to Canada. When everything was said and done, it was $800.

Likes: Saddle is in brand new condition and was immaculately kept. Leather is butter soft and I LOVE the color. At first I was worried that the seat would be too narrow, which is what I found with a lot of jumping saddles. Even though the seat measures on the narrow side, it sure doesn't feel like it. This saddle is SUPER comfortable and sucks up oil/conditioner well. The leather is actually NICER than my friend's brand new Jaguar jumping saddle. lol

Dislikes: The ONLY dislike I can come up with is the tree width. This is their extra wide, 36cm tree...and it fits fairly narrow. It is about the same width as my generous med-wide/wide kieffer wein DL dressage saddle.

Quality: The saddle is well made, with attention to detail. I LOVE the velcro removable thigh blocks, and the knee block is supportive without being restricting. I am not used to knee blocks and was worried about it, but it doesn't affect my leg position at all. I'd imagine that all it would do is prevent you from being thrown forward out of the saddle/on the ground if you were pitched forward.

Summary: BEAUTIFUL saddle, and well worth the $1200ish they sell for, new. I am VERY impressed with the comfort of the seat, the quality of the leather and construction, and the gorgeous smooth, soft leather in a stunning color and style. LOVE this saddle! (Not as wide as i'd hoped it would be though, so heads up if you're considering one for a wide horse. The saddle is also A-shaped instead of hoop/U shaped.)
