Crosby
Olympia
All Purpose Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Crosby
Model: Olympia
Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: Bought it new... maybe 1200?

Likes: A great all around saddle, deepish seat but still easy to get up out of for jumping. Good quality leather that doesn't scratch easily like some of the thinner glove leathers do nowadays.

Dislikes: Stitching underneath is coming loose at this point (it's about 18 yrs old) at the tree/flocking. Not sure if it is unreasonable to expect it to stay stitched at its age, but my Crosby's are the only 2 saddles (all old) with stitching issues.

Quality: Excellent overall, except for the stitching.

Summary: A great saddle if you can still find one.
