Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I recently outgrew my old saddle and wanted a nice new one. I bought the Connoisseur for $699 through Dover, it came with a free collegiate bridle.

Likes: I absolutely LOVE this saddle. It puts my legs in an excellent position and is the perfect jumping saddle. It is very comfortable and the color is very desirable for hunters instead of 2-tone saddles. The narrow twist is very comfortable.

Dislikes: The flap is a bit short so I had to get a new girth and the billets are a bit stiff at first but with oiling they become very soft.

Quality: It is very nicely made and there is no sign yet of my leathers(collegiate also) rubbing on the saddle or threads coming loose. The die is intact, and there is no sign of the die coming out.

Summary: It is a very nice saddle for a beginner through advanced rider because it puts your leg in a great position and is very good for jumping as well as flat.
