Vega Saddles

Has anyone heard of them?
They're super expensive, but they also look comfy too!

That's ok JDI!

I saw them looking through my dover catalog, and the name popped out at me (obviously because of Vega)
I thought it would be cool because Gem has his brand (Tory leather.. his registered name is Tory Gem) and then Vega would have her brand.

Childish, maybe, but how cool would it be to ride in tack named after your horse?!

The jumping saddle (the first one) looks amazingly comfortable! I was looking for a used one on ebay because I saw it in my Dover catalog too. They're very pretty! I love the color too.

STAY AWAY

Jaguars come from the same factory as Black Country and they are HORRID. I initially looked at those at a local tack shop here because they are quite comfy and loved the look. Ran into a few riders at the big fair we have here and was warned on multiple occasions of the poor quality. I ended up getting a Black Country saddle which at the time didnt realize was the same thing just under different names-big mistake. I used it a few times, for MAJOR scratches that wont come out, some sewing underneath is coming out and I have had that saddle on consignment for the last 6 months but I can't seem to get ride of it.
A lady at the barn spent the money on one and it looks horrid(one of those people who despite warnings and help being offered, thinks she knows everything). The saddle does not fit her nor the horse. It's a mess.

Just....stay away. If you can afford the price tag, you have dozens of brand names that are well known that will carry you for years to come.

Thanks for that M2G!

I liked it only because it had the same name as my horse, but I definitely won't consider it. Not that I had 3k to spend on a saddle anyways.

And that's the thing. I am only saying this because of my personal experience. I'm still pretty mad to this day at 3,000+ purchase I made on my second last saddle especially when it was nothing but a nightmare after I got it.

If you search online there is a online tack review web page with a lot of saddle brands, you might find different opinions there.

Good Luck

I went onto horsetackreview and I found 2 reviews on the Vega saddles and they were all rated 4+ stars.

I appreciate you sharing your experience, I could only imagine spending 3k+ only to find out a saddle for around 1k would have been better

Foal
Vega saddles and Amerigo saddles are super comfy I was sad when I sent mine away with my pony when I sold him. If you don't want to spend too much money (like my mother now that I've gone through many saddles) there is a custom saddle company in England that is run through ebay that I just ordered a custom from. Not nearly as expensive as going French, mine was 899 pounds including shipping/handling and should be done in less than a month or so he says not the horribly long wait like for the French saddles. All the reviews were 100% positive but I can't speak for them myself.

Heres the link http://stores.ebay.ie/Heritage-Custom-made-saddles-Tack
