Gaited Horse Saddle
Trail Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Stubben
Model: Gaited Horse Saddle
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle at National Bridle Shop. The saddle retails for 1790. I traded three nice Campbell show saddles and a no name Western saddle for this saddle. We had gotten out of showing and I wanted to consolidate my tack. I had started trail riding my former show horse and needed a deeper seat to ride up and down hills.

Likes: The saddle does allow me to ride securely on the trail. It is light weight. It is pretty enough to use in the show ring too. It has wool flocking that seems to mold to your horse's back. You don't even have to use a pad.

Dislikes: The tree is only 31 cm. wide which is pretty narrow for the average gaited horse. Stubben uses a soft leather for the knee rolls and sides that seem to absorb dirt. The saddle pushes the rider forward and requires a Tush cushion to make it comfortable. I've had many folks try it and say the same thing.

Quality: My Campbell saddles looked newer after ten years than this Stubben does after only three years. I clean and oil this saddle at least once a month. I can't see myself owning it ten years.

Summary: Stubben should stick with what it does best. It's Gaited pleasure saddle is an attempt to capture a different market which it knows little about.
