Priced pretty cheap for its make! My aunt gave me her old Collegiate when I visited their ranch and it is the most comfortable saddle. It's not a close contact saddle, I think it's a jumping saddle, but I love Collegiates now.

Thanks for the reply, that's what I was thinking! I saw the price and was like, wow that's pretty cheap! A lot of their used saddles are at pretty decent prices too!

They labeled it as a Close Contact, but I could use a jumping saddle just as well for schooling and hunter shows right? I do jump after all :P

It's priced cheap because plain flaps are not in style for shows. That style of saddle is very hard to sell used. I know more than a few tack shops that won't take them in for consignment or trade.

Collegiates are good saddles though. I would ask Bucks if the padding is in good shape or if it will need to be reflocked anytime soon.

Interesting that this one says it is available with sueded flaps, knee rolls, etc...they must have several? Makes me wonder. They only show the one pic, I would wonder if the others are in the same condition.

Let me know if you want pics of the one I have-same style as this one, but less used.

They don't have others, just that one. I think they meant it can come in those as well. And no it's okay. Not yet. I bought a stubben, but I may need a second saddle Ina week or so so I will contact you if I do.

Collegiates are, I think, cheap saddles. But they aren't awful. If you need a low priced saddle right away, that seems like a good choice.

I live right near Bucks County Saddlery..I thought it was funny you found a saddle there..it's like the only tack shop close by around here.
