Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I looked at many different saddlers in the Virginia area, and ended up with only a few options. I branched out to Hastilow (in Pennsylvania). A representative came to my barn, measured my horse, fit saddles, chose the three that fit the best (out of the 15 or so she brought with her), and let me ride in all three. I chose the hunter/jumper pony saddle for my pony Ruby. The saddle fit both of us. Saddle, matching leathers, and matching girth was $2,800. Travel charge for the consultation was about $180.
Likes: I chose this saddle because it fit my pony very well, fit me perfectly, has an adjustable tree, can be re-flocked (if needed) for a low cost, and has a lifetime warranty. There are many options available (color, seat size, blocks, knee rolls, leg flaps, etc.). I was lucky, and the saddle I tried was what I wanted and just so happened to fit. Had I needed the saddle made, it would have taken 6 weeks to manufacture and ship.
Dislikes: This particular saddle has doe-skin accents, which looked a little strange to me a first, but they are growing on me.
Quality: Very well made. Hastilow is one of only a handful of qualified saddle masters in the United States. Each saddle component is thoroughly tested and inspected to meet very specific standards. You can find out more about this on their website.
Summary: Love this saddle and am very glad someone suggested that I look into this brand, or I would have missed out. Life time warranty, adjustable, and guaranteed buy-back for these saddles.
