Galaxy
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Hartley
Model: Galaxy
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: Purchased this saddle 30 years ago for $300 at Vordembergs in Timonium, MD.

Likes: This saddle is still going strong. It's been on thousands of horses. Have hunted in it, showed hunters and jumpers and galloped race horses with it. Been used on quarter horses and TBs and have never had a sore back. Never have had to use special padding, beautifully balanced by a saddle maker who knew what he was doing.

Dislikes: No frills, no extra padding, nothing to keep you in the saddle or a leg in the proper position. Recommend a saddle saver for long trail rides.

Quality: Simple construction with no interference between horse and rider.

Summary: An incredibly durable product at a most affordable price. Literally will last a lifetime.
