Stubben
Siegfried
All Purpose Saddles



Manufacturer: Stubben
Model: Siegfried
Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I bought a new Stubben Siegfried in 1986 and it has held up amazingly well for 21 years. I think I paid about $600 back then, these retail new for around $1700 nowadays.

Likes: The leather is thick and quality, stitching is very heavy and sound and overall it is just extremely well-made. It wears well and looks almost new still. It just reeks of quality and I love it!

Dislikes: Suede knee rolls. Very mid-1980s look in a lighter color, and generally speaking I think suede on a saddle is a bad idea. It's great while it's new but then becomes worn and slick. I also think the quality of the newer stubbens that are made in America in particular have really declined, especially given the price. They are not as good as they used to be; stitching is flimsier and the leather looks of poorer quality. I have been disappointed to see this change in stubbens, which I have always viewed as the BMW of saddles. On mine, the only flaw seems to be that the billets have come apart more easily than they should. Easily remedied, but a weakness.

Quality: Excellent construction and quality, good quality hardware.

Summary: I'd buy another any day, for the right price. A smart buyer will look for an older model in good condition rather than buying new - your dollars will go much farther.
