I love my saddle, and I got it for a great price. It is a Stubben Roxanne AP, and can sell for about $1400 right now - I got it for $400! Unfortunately, my instructor and I have decided it is just a little small for my long legs. I am just about to hit the small knee block on it at the top. I have no reason to be in a big hurry, but of course I just want to find an amazing saddle and sell my old one...
I am 5'9, with most of that being my legs. Since I bought both of my saddles with Candy, I am not sure of what size she is, but she seems to fit in my Wintec 250 that is a medium wide. I have only set it on her, haven't ridden her in it. Because I have that Wintec AP, I would like to find (and hopefully test ride in to make sure I like it) a saddle to buy, sell my Stubben, and then buy that saddle since I can't really throw around $1400 unsure if I will actually be getting that amount for my Stubben. I am a seat size of 17 or so inches, but 17.5 would probably be fine also.
So first, do you think I could sell my saddle for about $1400? This is it brand new at $2,500 Stubben Saddle ON SALE @ Saratoga Saddlery
And this is my saddle. It gets visible brown rubs if you don't condition it every one or two rides- and even then you can see in the photos it gets a little weird looking. There are a few scuff marks on the cantle, but other than that it is pretty impeccible. Most of the used Stubben Roxannes I am seeing are selling for about $1400 in slightly worse condition than mine
And second, do you have any recommendations for a saddle for long legged riders? No more than $1300 please!
Also, any opinions on these saddles?
This one doesn't come with a forward flap option but has a long flap option, and it looks pretty forward flapped to me. Marcel Toulouse Premia Saddle | Dover Saddlery
