Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I purchased this saddle off of ebay for half the retail price (anywhere from $1,100 - $1,300). I purchased it blind as I had never tried the Arosa out but I had tried another Courbette jumping saddle and enjoyed it. My mare was a rescue and her body is constantly changing as she is gaining more muscle. This saddle only comes in one tree size with their E-Motion Concept and molds to the horses back. Perfect for my mare.
Likes: No bulk by the stirrup bar. The seat is soft but still allows you to feel movement. Very forward and I felt very balanced in my seat. Thigh blocks are removable with velcro. Lightweight Has fit every horse I have out it on!
Dislikes: The billets are thick and stiff even after several oilings. The saddle flap is not the best quality leather.
Quality: Overall good and light weight! There are places of not so superior quality like the billets and saddle flap but they compensated for that in other places like the seat, knee rolls, and tree.
Summary: I would recommend this saddle to anyone looking for a mid priced saddle.
Usefulness Rating: 2.625 out of 5.
