All Purpose Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Crosby
Model: Sofride
Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle at a local tack shop used for 1000. They retail for 1900 I believe.

Likes: This is a well put together saddle that is suitable for beginners, or people who ride as a hobby and don't want to spend a lot of money on a saddle. The saddle is well made and is easy to keep clean. This saddle is an all purpose saddle, so it is not suitable for jumping really above 2'6.

Dislikes: I like the saddle as a whole, as it is great for flat work. I switched barns about 2 years ago and bought a Devoucoux as I started jumping much higher and competing more. The Crosby is good for schooling shows, or going on trail rides when I don't want to risk getting my Devoucoux wet. I just wish that it was a little better for jumping.

Quality: The saddle quality is good, the leather is average, but holds up nicely. My Crosby is about 5 years old and the stitching is still fine and there are no cracks in the leather.

Summary: This saddle is great for someone's first saddle, and it is a high quality product. I don't think the price should be as expensive because it is really only an all purpose saddle. I'm going to give this saddle a four because it's not great for jumping, but it's perfect for flat days and long trail rides.
