Horse Tack Review

Diploma with Easy Change Gullet System
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Collegiate
Model: Diploma with Easy Change Gullet System
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I got this for $995 at Crazy Horse equestrian tack (online retailer) which included free shipping, free easy gullet system (worth $100), a Collegiate plain raised snaffle bridle (worth $90), and NO sales tax.

Likes: Everything. I didn't have a lot of money for a saddle and I am glad I got something well worth my money spent that's equally as good as other saddles that are usually twice as much. I'm particularly happy about the quality of the leather, how they designed the stirrup bar's location so it doesn't interfere with riding, the knee blocks, AirFlow flaps, and easy change gullet system so the saddle can fit me and any horse I ride.

Dislikes: The saddle has a tendency to scratch easily but it's not a big deal since they're only cosmetic and can disappear after I put Lexol on it. Also, unlike regular saddles with regular trees, the Easy Change gullet system is made out of this metal or steel material, which makes it solid, requiring you to change the gullets according to each horse's size. Nonetheless, I have nothing to complain about and I'm happy about this saddle.

Quality: Fine grain, soft leather. They easy change gullets are steel. Its got AirFlow flaps so you don't have to reflock them, and very nice knee blocks. I like the modern design under the flaps cause it makes the saddle look up to date and sportyish...

Summary: It's a great saddle and I'm a happy customer. I don't think I could've got a better deal for a new saddle at the price I'm paying for. If you're looking for a saddle with great incentives and a low price, I suggest you take a look at Crazy Horse first. I've ridden in lots of saddles such as Crosby's and Stubbens, and I prefer my Collegiate over them any day.
