Are you sure you aren't talking about the World Cup by BEVAL? Not German, I think French. It's an ok saddle. There was a a girl at the barn who had one and it was a little hard and flat for my taste but not bad.

You know that's what I'm thinking about too (Beval), but the guy said "from Germany". So... Who knows... Anyway I'm passing on them, as I was told that place is not extremely great for buying saddles. :)

We just bought a new saddle last week from an online Tex Tan company, midwestsaddle.com and it's perfect!!! My wife was thrilled too because it was several hundred dollars cheaper than we found elsewhere!!! Good luck!!!
Amen!! I've always ridden Tex Tan (Hereford) saddles

For just a basic, cheaper, trail saddle, I like my Fabtron, although i prefer my Aussie stock saddle, so it just depends which horse I catch first as to which saddle I use...

Actually Beval's are made in Argentina. And they are quite fabulous! I have a Stamford and I wouldn't put my butt in anything else. Give it a try!

Are you positive about it? I know Butet is french-made (not sure about other models). I'm looking into Pessoa at the moment.

Beval has a wide range of saddles. Some are made in Argentina (Stamford, Princeton, Gladstone, Salem), some in England (Natural, World Cup, LTD, Devon), some in France (Butet).

Basically, if it's around $1K it's Argentina, $2-3K England, $4-5K France.

I posted comments on that other board where those pics are. ou can find it easily w/ Google. Those are both the Ashly & Clarke Ayr with the Sherwood adjustable tree. Seat runs small due to the depth and also how far the cutback extends. For me, I'd buy a 17.5" in this model and I normally ride a 16.5" in a cc.
