Jumping Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Collegiate
Model: Nobility
Category: Jumping Saddles

Purchase: I found this saddle at a local tack shop on trial and really loved the way it felt. However, the owner would not budge on the price on a pretty well used saddle so I searched online for a better price. Ended up finding it at for a deal at $695 and free shipping! This saddle retails at around $1,000 so I was very lucky to get it at this price NEW.

Likes: I LOVE this saddle. LOVE it. I almost want to buy a second one as a spare just in case. I actually always keep my eye out for a deal on it because my jumping trainer wants one as well. It has great support with the front and rear blocks, and fits my very hard to fit mare (shark withers, broad shoulders) very well. Offers great support for a newbie over fences.

Dislikes: The seat felt a little hard the first month I owned it, and the color is a little lighter than I prefer. However, the seat no longer bothers me (the fit and stability of the saddle made up for it, and I think it may be breaking in a bit) and the color is darkening up with Passier Lederbalsam and sun exposure.

Quality: Excellent quality, although I have only had it for about 6 weeks so cannot really attest to that. Construction appears very good with tight stitching. As others have said, the billets are a little stiff, but seem to be softening with oiling and usage.

Summary: This seems to be a very balanced, well made, and supportive saddle. Fits high-withered horses well. Despite the color I do think it is a very attractive saddle. I read that others say it is fashioned after the Albion K2 Jumper, and from pictures they do seem very similar. I would recommend this saddle to anyone, especially beginners who need a little extra support.
