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

Purchase: The retail is $995, but I paid about $700 for this saddle at Dover. I told the lady helping me to show me all the close contact saddle around $1,000. I looked at all the saddles, sat it them, and sat in them again. This was my favorite.

Likes: There's a lot I like about this saddle. First, and most important, is that it fits most horses nicely. It fits my pony, my thoroughbred, my appy, even a student's Holsteiner. It truly fits you close to the horse and puts you in a very correct position. In a matter of weeks, the leather softened and wasn't so slippery. I love how secure you feel in this saddle on the flat as well as over fences. I'm not one that enjoys riding in a saddle that keeps me forward all the time since I spend most of the week on the flat. Another real good quality in this saddle is the small amount of "stuff" in between your knee and the horse. There's nothing worse than a large padded knee roll that pushes your knee out. This is the favorite saddle in my barn...my students argue over who is going to ride in it.

Dislikes: Within only a small period of time, there were marks from the leathers rubbing. They do oil out for the most part, it's just not the best leather you will find.

Quality: Having ridden in many saddles, from "cheapo no-name brands" up to some nice Jaguars, I would say this is definitely worth the money. It's a good quality saddle and the tree has a life long warranty.

Summary: Go for it. If this is your price range, you won't find a better one out there. I highly recommend it for someone who wants a nice saddle that's secure and comfortable over fences as well as on the flat.
