Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: Originally saw in a tack shop almost 15 years ago and at the time didn't have the 5,000 it would take to purchase one. About three months ago, I saw this saddle on ebay and couldn't resist. I won it for 750.00, and I could not be any happier.
Likes: Everything, its uber soft and supple, the monoflap puts you right on the horse so you can feel everything and it smells heavenly. The color is a very rick almost burnt butter brown and the previous owners did a WONDERFUL job of keeping this saddle maintained. Mine was confirmed to be 15 years old (these come with serial numbers), a medium wide and stuffed with wool padding. The stitching looks brand new, the leathers for the stirrups look new and the billets look like they have been used a handful of times.
Dislikes: THAT THEY QUIT MAKING THEM AND YOU CANNOT FIND THEM ANYWHERE!
Quality: Made in Germany, top class construction with enough flexibility in the tree to give when a horse needs the saddle to flex. Leather is in perfect supple condition and I honestly will never need another event saddle.
Summary: If you can find one, get it PERIOD! Like I stated before, I had seen one 15 years ago and that was the last time since I got mine.
Usefulness Rating: 2.75 out of 5.
