Dover
Circuit Elite
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Dover
Model: Circuit Elite
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I purchased this saddle from Dover Saddlery in 2001 for about $600.

Likes: I bought this saddle after attending a clinic in Florida where Dover had donated a bunch of their saddles. I had always ridden in Crosby before, but was not impressed with the newer Crosby's and their lack of seat padding. I love the Elite, it was very easy to break in, and now six years later I still receive compliments on how it looks, and how soft it is. Many of my friends who ride in it like it better than their more pricey saddles. I showed top level hunters in it and it always performed well.

Dislikes: Three things. It does not fit my most recent horse, regular tree not wide enough for the warmbloody types. The flaps are a little short for my long thigh, as many newer saddles have longer flaps (As does the newest Elite model). The girth billets are showing the most wear of the whole saddle, need replaced, but are six years old!

Quality: Nice leather at a reasonable price, secure seat, does not force your position like so many of the newer saddles. A quality saddle for the cost and the panels are still soft and comfortable for the horse, and me!

Summary: Great saddle for the price!
