Smile Good Jumping Saddle?

I'm getting back into showjumping and I'm wanting to get a new jumping saddle. Has anyone had experience with a Stubben Colombo MF?

Very nice Stubben Colombo MF 17,5" jumping saddle! (eBay item 220708972206 end time 20-Dec-10 04:36:22 AEDST) : Sport

I think the best thing to do is find one that is built for your horse....look into a saddle fitter or a chiropractor. They can be a big help in fitting your horse so both you and he are comfortable.
Good luck

I agree with ss6bee. First find out what brands/models would be a good fit for your horse (like Stubben is no-no for either of my mares based on their build), and then pick from there.

Stubborn are good however they are very hard the whittaker saddles are by far the best for showjumping and the Barnsby are very good how much do you want too spend as these are at least 1200.

Stubben fan but ebay is a risk

My daughter rode on a Stubben Edelweis jumping saddle with her first lease horse. She LOVED it for its soft seat and it fit a tough to fit horse. I then bought her a used Carlye on consignment as her first saddle and it was fine for a while. The benefit from a consignment or tack shop over ebay is that if it isn't comfortable or doesn't fit the horse right, you usually have 7 days to return it. She has used the Carlyle for a year and it looks beautiful, but now that she is jumping more she complains it is uncomfortable. We just saw a used Stubbem Edelweis on ebay and the pictures looked excellent. It had a great Buy It Now price so we took the chance and ordered it. Now I am obsessing about whether it will really be OK since there are big differences even within the Stubben Edelweis line based on when it was made, size, slight design modifications etc. Maybe we will be lucky and it will turn out as well as it looked on ebay. If not, I am prepared to get it reflocked or resell it if it isn't right. I would have paid more for it on consignment but there is something to be said for peace of mind.

All that being said, I think we are Stubben fans! I am not familiar with the model you are looking at but I think they make a quality product.
