LTD Junior Jumping Saddle
Jumping Saddles



Manufacturer: Dover
Model: LTD Junior Jumping Saddle
Category: Jumping Saddles

Purchase: I acquired my saddle shortly after I started riding. After trying many saddles we finally found this one and it was a perfect fit not only for me, but for many of the lesson horse's and ponies I rode. When it came time for me to have a pony of my own, my saddle still fit my pony who is a stocky Quarter Pony with a very broad back. I paid about $1,500 for this saddle.

Likes: This saddle is excellent for jumping and even equitation on the flat where you have to perform sitting trot and in hand gallops. This saddle is also really nice because it is not too deep to perform two point in but also isn't too flat to sit in. The leather used on this saddle is also very nice because it was easy to break in but doesn't easily scratch. This saddle is nice because for the smaller rider, it is light weight enough for them to tack up their own horse. I never had a problem with pinching the horse's back with this saddle. When it came time to resell it, this saddle went very fast and we got almost as much money for the saddle as we paid for it. I rode in that saddle for almost 3 years and, being 10, it only had many scratches and held up to the test of time pretty well. A really nice feature of this saddle is that it offers a specialized flap for those riders with long legs or maybe long thighs and regular calves.

Dislikes: The only problem I had with this saddle was I had to pay for the saddle flaps to be replaced. The replacement was very cheap though and at the time I had a very grippy knee.

Quality: The LTD's tend to feature a more forward flap and a pretty wide tree. The saddle was designed for the rider who is competitive in the hunter or equitation ring. The saddle is nice because it is versatile enough to be taken on the trail, on a hack in the country or in the A circuit show ring. The LTD Junior only comes in the smaller sizes, I believe 13" to 15", but it's larger model, the LTD, comes in the larger sizes.

Summary: This saddle is not only a dream to ride in but also a dream to any horses back. It is nice enough to catch the judges eye, but not one of the expensive saddles you will outgrow in 4 months. It is defiantly one of the most comfortable saddles I have ridden in and I have ridden in quite a few including some Butets and Crosbys!
