Manufacturer: Beval Saddlery
Model: Salem Saddle
Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle from my local tack shop for $1,150. I had been looking for a high-quality, relatively low-cost saddle for a while and when the Dover Circuit Elite turned out to have terrible leather, we tried the Beval Stamford. Because we were disappointed with the leather quality of the Stamford we moved a notch up in price and tried the Salem.
Likes: The quality of the leather in this saddle is phenomenal. It breaks in quickly, is very grippy, and extremely soft. The seat is comfortable and cushy. It puts the rider in the right place if you have decent equitation.
Dislikes: I dislike nothing about this saddle.
Quality: It is put together very well out of high-quality materials. One would expect this quality for much higher prices.
Summary: This has been a wonderful saddle so far. I would not hesitate to buy the product again and I recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, usable, and show-quality saddle.
