Ovation
Evolution XCH
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Ovation
Model: Evolution XCH
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: Purchased this saddle NWT from an individual. Had it shipped to me for $800, which included new covered leathers, saddle pad, and extra gullet.

Likes: This saddle has gorgeous, dark, and soft leather. It is very soft and the seat is very comfortable. After riding in a rock hard saddle for over 20 years, I was very happy to finally have some padding! The XCH system means I'll never have to worry if this fits my current or future horse. All it takes is a screwdriver! The leather quality is very impressive. My daughter owns a Pessoa, and the Ovation is even more "buttery" than her saddle.

Dislikes: Saddle has foam flocking, which from what I understand, can breakdown over time?! Only time will tell!!

Quality: Stitching and leather quality are of wonderful quality!

Summary: Saddle shopping was so stressful for me (and my husband....nearly drove him crazy). Everything I WANTED was out of my price range. So, I thought I was "settling" with the Ovation. However, after comparing with other brands, it is comparable in quality while being a bargain price! Love it!!
