Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Collegiate
Model: Alumni
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle from a tack shop online and paid $1098 for it. It included the gullet change system and a bridle.

Likes: Nice color, leather was good quality. Not as nice as my old Beval saddle, but for the money it would be a good saddle if it fit me properly.

Dislikes: I am 5'4" and weigh 120 pounds. I bought the 16" saddle and for a shorter person like myself, I would say this is not a good saddle because the flaps are just too forward! Even after shortening my stirrups to an uncomfortably short length in an attempt to reach the knee rolls at the proper spot, it felt horribly off balance for me and like I was fighting for my position. I never have a problem with keeping my legs underneath me, but I fought against riding in a chair seat just because the knee rolls were so far forward and the position of the stirrup bars was odd. For a long legged person this saddle might work great.

Quality: Good quality construction i think. I only had it for a few days before sending it back but it looked nice.
