Prestige
Hunter Classic D 16/35
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Prestige
Model: Hunter Classic D 16/35
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I searched the world up and down for months trying to find a good deal on this saddle. i sat in it at rick's heritage saddlery and knew that I needed to buy it (we all know how frustrating the saddle search can be), yet I did not want to pay nearly $3,000 for a saddle. Finally, I found it on ebay and got it for $1550. It was *slightly* used.

Likes: The leather is absolutely amazing quality. I like it better than my old devoucoux. It is soft and supple, and accepts oil well---but does not require regular oiling. It is very comfortable, but I don't feel like there are miles between the horse and I like I did in the Amerigo's that I found. It puts my leg in a great position and amazingly my knees do not go over the flaps, and this is a regular sized flap. Though it is a wide tree (35) it has fit both of my horse's wonderfully. Prestige also adjusts their trees up to 2 sizes each way---awesome!

Dislikes: If I could ask for anything it would be the addition of thigh blocks, though I know most people don't like them. Hey, the price may be a tad high, but hold out and look around, you can get a deal!

Quality: The stitching is excellent, and the leather is amazingly supple. Very high quality. Hunter classic D's have a double layer of Italian calfskin which make it slightly more durable than just the single layer. I have heard people complain about calfskin saddles getting marked up easily, but that has not been my experience, though I am careful with all my saddles. It is worth the money.

Summary: It's awesome amazing and absolutely perfect for me. The saddle search is so frustrating and I finally found my dream saddle!
