Jumping Saddle
Jumping Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Kingsley
Model: Jumping Saddle
Category: Jumping Saddles

Purchase: I bought this because I won an auction for $50 and thought it might be good to have an additional saddle around. I was told it was an all-purpose, it when it arrived, it was clearly a jumping saddle.

Likes: This is a high quality older saddle. The leather is slick and sleek. None of the stitching is loose-it is all very tight The tree is in excellent shape and so is the leather, though this saddle is likely 40 years old or older (I was told it was at least 30 when I bought it 7 or 8 years ago). This is one durable saddle that has seen a lot of use but doesn't have problems with more!

Dislikes: The only thing I don't like is that I can't find out any information about the brand, because the saddle is so old. Clearly, Kingsley saddles aren't made any more. This is a high quality saddle, but not one being manufactured on today's market. This saddle has some wear from use and abuse in its years, but less than it should for a saddle so old, and that does not bother me because it is due to normal wear and odd circumstances (a dog bit it a couple times on the cantle!)

Quality: Excellent, high-quality saddle. It is a bit slick (maybe too much oiling?) but has lasted and lasted. There are no padded flaps on this one-it is slick all the way. Even the billets are in good shape, though I do not know if they were replaced at one point or not.

Summary: Sheesh, for $50 for a high-quality saddle, even if it is old, what is there to complain about? I highly recommend picking up one of these saddles if you see one cheap. It was evidently a good brand. The only downside is that none of today's features, like the padded knee, are present, and you may need to have it repadded, due to the age. If anyone knows more about this saddle, I'd love to learn more!
