Dover Saddlery
Circuit Elite Close Contact
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Dover Saddlery
Model: Circuit Elite Close Contact
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I found this saddle for sale on ebay for around $700 in barely used condition.

Likes: I really like the look of the saddle! It fits a bunch of different horses. I've put it on a narrow TB of mine and it fits my other thicker chested WB and believe it or not it fits my QH just fine. I have used a wither pad for the TB but it fits her fine. The seat is very comfy and its a nice jumping saddle. I like the knee blocks and thigh blocks as well, it really molds your leg into the right position.

Dislikes: Leather quality... I hadn't done a whole lot of homework about leather. This saddle doesn't take conditioner or oil very well. In some parts of the saddle it looks almost fake. It scratches very easily and its hard to break it. The leather has changed color and the leather also looks painted on in some parts of it. The stitching is great though.

Quality: Not a very good quality saddle. If you are riding everyday for an hour + this saddle is not for you.

Summary: Don't waste your money on something that you know is not worth buying. Save your money for a nicer so you will LOVE riding in it everyday.
