Purchase: I ordered it from sstack.com (Schneider Saddlery). It was originally sold at $2,500 but I got it for $1,499 (no tax or shipping fees! Literally $1,499.00). It was only available in my exact size and color preferences (so I got lucky) the only thing you were able to pick for the size was the tree. I got a 17" seat, regular tree, Ebony colored one. The ebony color is a deep chocolate brown. Ordering was very easy. Delivery was quick (it arrived before it was expected to which was great). It came with information on saddle fit and leather care, as well as: - Stubben ph leather soap (FULL SIZE) - Stubben leather conditioner (FULL SIZE) - Stubben saddle cover ** Did not come with leathers or irons** I decided to buy a Stubben when I saw a video they had with this rep. explaining how their saddles are designed with the thoroughbred in mind. Which is awesome. It is so hard to find a saddle that fits my OTTB's shark fin withers and large shoulders.
Likes: ( I am a 23 year old 5'3 130lb female for any comparison) HORSE SADDLE FIT: My horse has high shark fin withers but he is also built VERY large for a Thoroughbred and has these huge shoulders that have been the problem for a good saddle fit. This saddle gives him the clearance in his shoulders and withers that he needs and I saw a HUGE difference from the first ride I had in the saddle!! My horse moves better and is a lot more forward. HOW I FEEL IN THE SADDLE: From the first time I sat in this saddle, I instantly found my seat bones (which was harder for me in my last saddle). It encouraged my legs to be in the correct position and I find it very easy to get my heels down (also issues I had with my last saddle). This saddle is VERY COMFORTABLE!! Even on the first ride!! I can finally keep my leg locked in the same position the entire ride without having to struggle to do so! It really is incredible the difference a saddle can make with your riding. Also, sitting trot in this saddle is amazing! It just locks you in. I have heard peoples complaints about the older Stubben's and I have to say that NONE of them ring true with this saddle. This is the best saddle I have ever ridden in!! Hands down. 10 STARS!!
Quality: This saddle is WOW!! The leather quality is great, it is SO well made.
Summary: I could not be happier with this purchase!!! Got an amazing saddle at an AMAZING price! This saddle will last me the rest of my life, I am sure of it.
