Horse Tack Review


Courbette
Merkur
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Courbette
Model: Merkur
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I purchased my saddle from an online tack shop for $699 four years ago. I've been told that it is a discontinued model, but I'm not sure. I later found the same saddle on State Line tack for $600.

Likes: I purchased the saddle in black, and even after four years of daily use, it shows almost no fading. The saddle looks almost as good as when I first bought it. It puts you in a fantastic jumping position, and has that nice close contact feel.

Dislikes: AS other saddle owners seem to agree, this saddle is the hardest thing I've ever sat in. The saddle still looks and FEELS brand new. The leather has barely broken in at all.

Quality: This saddle seems to be constructed very well. The stitching still looks like new. It may just be my imagination, but the saddle also seems to be more scratch and water resistant than other saddles.

Summary: Overall, a great saddle for the money.
