All Purpose Saddles



Manufacturer: Passier
Model: All Purpose PS Baum
Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: My latest Passier was purchased off eBay two years ago from Netfilly, who is a GREAT seller and has quality products. It was new and was $1000 which is a steal, they retail for over $2200.

Likes: I knew I wanted another Passier All Purpose. The very best thing about them is how readily they fit a variety of horses. My old one was built in 1968, I bought it in 1986 for $250, gave it to a friend who is a saddler in 2002, and he rebuilt it and someone else is loving it now. My new one is a gorgeous sandalwood color, the leather is sumptuous, and it's comfortable and secure. I love everything about it except it is a wide tree and I would prefer a medium. It works on 5 of our 7 horses, two require a narrow tree. As for the rider, I have long legs from hip to knee and it fits my legs really well as the flaps are long and forward cut. This is really hard for tall riders to find, and it keeps your knees from coming up over the top of the knee rolls when you shorten your stirrups for jumping. The Passiers are available in large sizes, I believe up to a 19" seat. Mine is an 18". It is very comfortable for long days foxhunting and trail riding.

Dislikes: No complaints other than it's still got a new saddle squeak, my fault for not oiling and not riding enough to break it in. My young horses are still in western tack. I know the fairly big knee rolls are not the fashion right now, but boy are they great for security, and the deep seat keeps you in there to.

Quality: The leather is fantastic, the stitching, hardware, all top notch. Passier is worth the money. I am so sad for all the young riders who are lured into the trend of the moment and never get to experience what real quality is. Everyone who makes the newbie mistake of buying a cheap new import saddle from Asia instead of a well worn German one has my sympathy. You will lose your money and risk hurting yourself and your horses. Get advice!

Summary: I have owned horses for 40 years. I have the Passier, four Stubbens, two Courbettes, a WH Gidden, and an Ainsley saddle. There is no junk in my tack room. The Passier is by far my best saddle. The cutback pommel is the key to the universal fit, so if you can't get a Passier, consider that feature, and be sure to get expert advice from someone who is not trying to sell you their saddle!
