Question Good quality english stirrup leathers that won't break the bank?

I just ordered a new saddle, the Pessoa Gen-X Elita, which I am very excited to get I wanted to get the matching covered leathers as well, but the cheapest I can find them is $150 so I want to see if I can find some other less expensive options!

My current leathers are Courbettes and I love them, but I need shorter ones as I'm going from an AP to a close contact and I'll be riding a couple holes shorter on my already twice punched high as they'll go leathers

Anyone have any suggestions? The color I'm looking for is havana brown!

I have some Stubben children's length leathers that I bought for $80something. Is that affordable enough? They're fantastic quality & come in several different colours.

Love MT ones. So broke-in new. I had a pair for my dressage, and when I got jumping I got pair too.

I got the (cognac) pair from here: | Maryland Tack, Inc.. They come in different colors. Was cheaper than in Dover too (here is Dover ones: Marcel Toulouse Lined Stirrup Leathers | Dover Saddlery )

BTW, I believe I still have an MT pair from my Collegiate saddle (the spare one I sold last year). They are used (bought new in Dover) but in very good condition (like all my tack). And they matched my havana brown saddle very nicely (I believe in Dover it what's called "chocolate" color). If you are interested let me know (I just cleaned and keep them in my leather box ever since).

Kitten_val could you send me some pics of your MT ones? My dressage leathers and MT double leather and I love them!! What would you be asking for them?

Also what does everyone think I need size-wise to be able to make them short enough for jumping in a close contact saddle, when I am pretty short - only 5'1".

Hoofprints, let me check if I still have them (I'm pretty positive I didn't send them with the saddle, but who knows, it's been several months already). If I do I'll take some pics tomorrow. :) May be you won't like the color - who knows. Lol!

Oh, and they should be 54" (I don't think MT comes in other length beside dressage of course).

Hoofprint, I didn't have a chance to take pics of the leathers alone (sorry about it! I have to get batteries for my camera and didn't have a chance), but here are the pics of the leathers on saddles. 1st saddle is hawana brown Collegiate, other one is Pessoa. Let me know if that's something you want or you want more pics. :)

I think about $60 + $5 for shipping with Priority.

BUT they are standard 54" (just to keep in mind, I remember you said you are looking for the shorter ones because you are not very tall).

And I'd rather to take some pics too for you to look before you decide. Will try to do it tonight. :)

Ok thanks! I'll measure mine when I'm at the barn tonight too, just to see for comparison!
