Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Stubben
Model: Siegfried
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: Bought the saddle used at Millbrook Tack & Trailer outside Grand Rapids. They take saddles on consignment. This is an older model but no one was sure what year it was made. Paid $350.

Likes: I'm riding an older horse who has back issues. This saddle (wide tree) seems to fit him as comfortably as his back allows. It clears his spine and shoulder blades well and doesn't bridge. I'm hoping his uneven muscle development will improve with this better-fitting saddle. It's lighter weight than more modern saddles with lots of padding. It positions my legs correctly and provides a reasonably deep seat. It works well for flat work, small jumps and trail riding on hills.

Dislikes: The seat is fairly slippery. I've been told this can be corrected with a bee's wax dressing. The seat is pretty hard to the touch. Doesn't feel hard when you're riding, but your back notices later.

Quality: The leather is in great shape. Stitching is tight. Billets had been replaced. Padding seems to be in very good condition. I really like the positioning of the stirrup bars, and getting leathers on and off is easy.

Summary: The saddle seems comfortable for my horse and works for me. In a perfect world, it would be a little more comfortable for the rider.
