Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Harry Dabbs
Model: Jaguar XJS
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle threw horseloverz and I inquired about giving the an offer on the saddle and found out they had a demo slightly used got the saddle for way less then 1/2 retail price

Likes: if you have never tried a jaquar you have got too. there is no ride I have tried that comes close to the comfort and easy break in on the paris leather model I rode in the older Nelson pessoa saddles for years till I found this saddle mine has the pencil knee rolls which are hard to find but well worth it I love the fit for me and the horse Its like riding in a cloud all day

Dislikes: only thing I can see is that the leather dye(auburn) is a strange color and a little hard to match a bridle but I can live with that. Also the flaps are lined with the paris leather so you have to be careful not to rub the leather or the dye will come off and use calf skin leathers to protected the leather. Super soft but wouldn't be to ruff on it or will rub the leather.

Quality: this saddle is well made for horse or rider and the tree is set up for more freedom of motion for your horse Less bulk near the shoulders so it doesn't interfere with there movement and also has a wide channel gullet for spine freedom. the paris leather is soft and supple there is no break in period.

Summary: all in all This will be my last saddle I will have to buy other than the strange burgundy brown color I can live with I see nothing I don't like about this saddle. I have not tried the ones with the bigger triangle knee block because I don't need the extra security over fences but if you find one with the pencil knee blocks and your ride mostly flat work you have to feel and see the difference in your horse's movement in this saddle.
