Crosby
Prix de Nations
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Crosby
Model: Prix de Nations
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: Bought used off eBay for $300 to replace my cheap, no name saddle.

Likes: This saddle is older (15-20 years old) but has never needed any repairs and the leather is still soft and beautiful. The lack of knee rolls seems intimidating at first, but really helps your seat and leg position. The saddle seems to fit a variety of horses well.

Dislikes: The seat has no padding, which will take some getting used to if you are accustomed to softer saddles. I don't mind it personally, but I know a few people who dislike it. It isn't exactly "pretty", but beauty is as beauty does.

Quality: Amazing quality, soft leather that has held up to years of use. Beautifully balanced saddle that just reeks of quality craftsmanship. If you can find one of these older gems, get it!

Summary: Fabulous saddle that I am lucky to own. Durable, dependable, safe, and will improve your equitation almost as much as a good instructor will!
