Jumping Saddles



Manufacturer: Dover
Model: Circuit Pro Saddle
Category: Jumping Saddles

Purchase: I ordered this saddle new from dover saddlery on sale for $849. I was looking for a well balanced saddle comparable to the pj but in a lower price bracket. This saddle fit the bill.

Likes: I love the tacky leather seat and knee rolls and all the great security features such as the reat thigh block. Lovely detailing and color as well, matches most tack.

Dislikes: Like i said i was looking for a saddle as well balanced but not as pr icy as a pj. This saddle has the balance but the quality of the leather used on the flaps is not very good. Without a serious preconditioning and careful break (as in the case of my first circuit pro) in the flaps got wear marks under the leathers.

Quality: I initially purchased this saddle in a regular tree only for my four year old to have outgrown it by the time it had been broken in. So i sold my first one and got a new one in a wide tree. This time i did not make the mistake of under oiling the leather on the flaps. I spent two days applying and reapplying oil to the underside of the flaps(literally until the leather wouldn't absorb the oil) before i even rode in it once. The extensive oiling breathed life into the flaps and helped my second saddle break in much quicker and hold up much better to the breaking in process over all.

Summary: Overall great quality and features for this price range. However be prepared to spend a significant amount of time oiling the flaps to get the most out of the lower quality leather. Also, the regular tree seemed a bit narrow, was far to narrow on my 16.2 appendix qh who isn't very broad, wouldn't recommend ordering it in regular tree unless you have an exceptionally narrow horse, perhaps a tb type build.
