Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle from a reputable preowned tack dealer online. I paid $3500 usd which is a really good price for this saddle as it was in like new cond maybe used a handful of times. They retail for $5500 usd new
Likes: This saddle is very well balanced. I have owned 2 devoucoux's previously, a barrittz and an older socoa and i found that both of these models are super well balanced and puts u in a good position on the flat and over fences. This saddle is a 2012 socoa and i was worried maybe the new models wouldnt fit or ride like the older ones but it is fantastic. Beautiful leather, soft and grippy. Nice wide gullet that gives lots of clearance for the spine. Medium tree that fits on all kinds of horses, this is a great saddle to buy if you want it to fit multiple horses. The socoa is listed as a flatter seat model out of the devoucoux but it actually fits like a half deep. The barrittz is a deep. With my current horse who is very uphill the socoa with the hald deep seat is a better ride then then deep seat. I love devoucoux! I would recommend it to anyone!
Dislikes: I love everything about this saddle! They are expensive but its worth it for the quality and how well balanced they are.
Quality: Very well made, tight stitching, beautiful soft calfskin. This one is a chocolate color and its just gorgeous. U really do get what u pay for and in this saddle its quality all the way. This saddle will last for 20 years!
Summary: I'ave had 3 saddles now from devoucoux a 98, 2004 and a 2012 all have been excellent quality and construction. I sold the first two saddles when i quit riding for a few years at diffrent times and they hold their value well and they sell easy as they fit so many horses and people so well!
