Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: $3200 when it was new
Quality: Very well made- ten years of hard riding and no repairs needed yet.
Summary: I think I am the first person to complete an endurance ride in a full calfskin antares jumping saddle. But honestly it is the most comfortable saddle I have ever ridden in. I just put the (original) stirrup leathers on the bottom hole, attached some wide track stirrups and was good to go. If I had to ride the tevis cup I would do it in this saddle. This saddle has done EVERYTHING with me. Galloping round cross country courses. Stadium jumping. Hacking hundreds of miles over all kinds of terrain. I took this saddle with me when I moved to england and ride horses there- nobody there knew about Antares at the time, but everyone who rode in it commented how balanced and comfortable it was. I will probably ride in this saddle until it disentegrates.
