Purchase: I bought this saddle from a tack shop I found on the Internet that had it advertised at the lowest price I could find, which was $1260. They had to custom order it from Stubben due to the fact I needed a 29 cm tree in a 16 1/2" seat and I wanted the chocolate color.
Likes: This saddle has broken in beautifully in several months time. It offers an amazingly close contact feel and is extremely comfortable. I absolutely love riding in this saddle! My off the track TB enjoys having a saddle that fits him this well also!
Dislikes: The only thing I'm not real happy about is that the dye has come off the bottom of the saddle flap where my leathers and leg rest. I understand this is a common enough situation nowadays. I think it might be due to the fact that my horse sweats so much, since my sister has a Stubben she just bought but doesn't have this problem with.
Quality: I believe that the construction and quality are fantastic for a saddle in this price range. When comparison shopping for saddles, I noticed that some higher priced brands didn't seem to have the same level of craftsmanship that the Stubbens had.
Summary: I am very happy with my purchase of this saddle. It was well worth the 2 month wait it took to have made. Just a note: Stubben's customer service is fantastic! Before making my purchase, I called several times and was very impressed with how patient they were answering my questions and concerns.
Usefulness Rating: 2.7 out of 5.
