Horse Tack Review

Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Collegiate
Model: Convertible
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: -$1100 -Carrol County Tack -This was the only saddle I could find that would be narrow enough for my skinny, sharkfinned TB, without having to sell it later on.

Likes: I Love the changeable gullet system. It was a lifesaver after searching many many tack stores for a narrow used saddle that, inevitably, wouldn't be narrow enough. The saddle puts you into a very nice position and you don't have to fight against it. Leather breaks in quickly within 2-3 conditionings.

Dislikes: I am always on the verge of regular flap or long flap, but the flap runs short and had to go for a long flap. The grain on the flaps shows where your leg has been after a while as the leather is rubbed flat while it is surrounded with more grain.

Quality: Saddle is constructed of good quality leather and good, tight, even stitches.

Summary: My horse and I enjoy this saddle and recommend it to anyone with a hard to fit horse or anyone who does not like to have to buy a new saddle with each new horse.
