My Stubben Siegfried is roughly 45 years old, and it's in beautiful shape for its age. I've found that with Stubbens, people either love them or they hate them. I love them, & I think mine is SO comfy. My trainer absolutely swears by them. Including shipping, I paid about $350 for mine when I bought it off ebay about 2 years ago.

I too love my Stubbens. I had one in the 1980's and sold it with my mare. I wish I still had it today. It was truly wonderful. I now have a new Siegfried and an Edelweiss nt. Love them! Good luck with your purchase.

Got the saddle!! Anyone have any idea how to clean and rehydrate the leather? It's not too dirty but is very dry. I bought Bickmores Ultimate Travel Kit which comes with leather conditioner and cleaner and a cloth. Should I do those first then see how it goes? It says the conditioner will help the dryness and may need to apply more then 1 coat but then I know I could always use neatsfoot oil...

Clean any dirt off, then I'd use pure neatsfoot oil on it to bring back the leather. Heat up the oil first, as that will make it absorb into the leather faster and easier.

Oh, and congrats! You got the deal of the century.

Oh I can't wait to see the before and afters! Did she go down on the price at all? I LOVE using the Leather New spray to start anything I'm trying to revive because it helps clean up dirt or dust and then Neatsfoot oil afterwards if it's extremely dry. The Leather New really gives it a good start though. That's what I used on my Stubben that was given to me out of a garden shed. Post pics!!

She took the $150. Going to go home and try to revive it. Definitely will have pics to follow tonight.

Okay this is before I cleaned it.



And this is after I cleaned it.


Still have yet to oil it! Any ideas on what the model is?

It really looks like a Siegfried to me. I guess there's no cover over the billets is there. That's where the model name would more than likely be written. I had to really look for mine. It was almost completely rubbed off because they usually print it on there in gold writing and don't stamp it into the leather like they do the serial number. Congrats on a great find though. It looks really good, especially for $150!
