Bruno Delgrange
PJ Original
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Bruno Delgrange
Model: PJ Original
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: (2006, medium tree) 17.5 PJ Original I found this saddle online at used saddles dot com, having been ridden in twice and oiled once. It was near-new when I got it, and I paid $2495 (a deal if you shop around)

Likes: What is not to like??? The leather is soft and supple from day one, and the higher-placed knee blocks and rear blocks literally PLANT your leg in the right position. It is the most balanced saddle I have ever ridden in. I can't believe I ever rode in anything else!! The seat is medium-deep for security before and over fences. Before it was oiled, it was a caramel color, but now it is a darker Havana color and I get tons of compliments on it. It fits my medium build TB well, without any additional half-pads or wither pads.

Dislikes: At this point, there isn't much I don't like about the saddle. If anything, the soft leather is easily scratched and I now keep my saddle in it's zippered cover at all times when not in use.

Quality: Soft French leather, quality stitching, solid construction!

Summary: If you can save your $$ and buy this higher-end saddle, it will last FOREVER and you will be pleased with it just as long...
