Purchase: I bought this saddle directly from StubbenNA in Virginia after having a fitter determine the best saddle for my pony and me. I bought the Stubben S Get Connected with the biomex seat, wool gusseted panels, and deluxe leather.
Likes: After a riding injury 6 years ago, I developed a cyst on my tailbone caused by the trauma of the fall. Right now surgery is not an option and the cyst was flaring up and becoming extremely painful every few weeks (most likely caused by the motion and pressure involved with a sitting trot, canter, etc). I noticed in the last few years I began taking on a defensive riding position and perching myself forward to avoid any possible pressure to that area. So I decided to look into a saddle that would take some pressure off of my tailbone and I found the stubben biomex seat. The stubben fitter was wonderful and helped me find the right fit for my pony and I soon had my new saddle. The biomex seat really does make a significant difference for me. I am still working through the mental block of not having to ride defensively of my tailbone, but there really is a HUGE improvement in my position and riding ability from this saddle. The leather is so durable and absolutely lovely. Everything about this saddle has me in love.
Dislikes: I have absolutely no dislikes about this saddle. Stubbens are expensive but worth every single penny! I also wanted to point out that while many people argue stubbens tend to have "less-comfortable" seats, they do have a "soft" seat option now for people who want to sink into a couch-like saddle. But for me the firmer feel to the seat is actually extremely beneficial. If the biomex was super soft and squishy then my seat bones would simply sink down and my tailbone would make contact with the saddle (something I desperately need to avoid). So if you are like me and dont want unneeded pressure on your tailbone or spine... the firmer seat and especially the biomex seat will help you a ton.
Quality: Beautiful saddle and great quality leather.
Summary: Incredible saddle and for people with spine or tailbone injuries- the biomex seat will change your life!
