For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Flex Rider
Model: Close Contact Saddle
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: This saddle was my first. I bought it for about $520 from my local tack shop. I needed a saddle for jumping and flatwork.

Likes: The color of the leather is really nice. It is a very comfortable saddle too. It fit every horse I ever used it on. It took oil very well. It fit my horse perfectly.

Dislikes: The saddle put me in a TERRIBLE position. I found it impossible to get my legs up under me. It also positioned me so that I was practically sitting on the cantle. It never really broke in either. The leather on the flaps is very stiff.

Quality: Several stitches on the flaps have come undone and the seat has some wear spots. The leather is stiff, but the seat is very comfortable.

Summary: I did not like this saddle. It put me in a bad position. The leather is stiff. The seat if very comfortable and it fits a wide range of horses.
