Jumping Saddles



Manufacturer: Prestige
Model: Nona Garson
Category: Jumping Saddles

Purchase: I was looking for a saddle with more of a jumping seat than my previous a/p saddle - Collegiate Event. I came across many eventing style saddles and did not like the fit for my long leg. I tried the prestige event and the Bates - caprilli and Event. None fit. I tried the prestige nona garson on a whim and didnt think it would work well. Boy was I surprised! I paid $1800 for my previously-sat-in-once Nona Garson +4 flap in Birmingham Alabama

Likes: This saddle carries you in a secure and correct position. I personally like the shallow seat for eventing, because it gives you such a secure leg, that you dont feel as though you are trapped in the saddle. The set knee and thigh blocks are an added bonus, they add security and help all levels in gaining strength in the correct muscles. I also like the adjustability of the flap length. You can special order your flap length, making the saddle custom made for you.

Dislikes: The saddle is a hard to fit saddle. On the plus side, there is some room to change a few cm's by a professional fitter. The girth billets are also positioned that when the saddle is girthed, they rub against the thigh blocks, because the saddle has such a forward flap.

Quality: The saddle is made with a great quality leather. The Girth billets are the only part that i worry may wear out faster. The leather is double stitched (i think) and is of a softer leather which makes it easier to girth, but easier to stretch out.

Summary: I have had the saddle for about a year now, and I cant to this day think of another saddle I would rather ride/live in!
