It could be a Siegfried, as it looks very similar to mine. I just don't know why it has one long billet strap hanging down.

Even the German made Siegfried I had and sold on didn't have long billets.

Here's my Swiss made Siegfried for comparison:

Yeah, that happens. Does it have anything actually stamped into the leather of the billet covers? Mine has the serial number and the gullet size.

Yeah maybe the billets were replaced? I thought that was odd as well. It's not even the middle one that's longer either. It's the first one...all the billets are different lengths. 305 is stamped on the billet cover but is pretty much rubbed off too

That's possible, but it's odd they'd all be different lengths.

Oh well, it's certainly a lovely saddle either way. Here's the German Siegfried I had and sold on:

Thank you. Yours is certainly lovely! I love stubbens. Well as long as the saddle is definitely a stubben I won't worry too much about those weird billets.

That humongous German made Siegfried went on to a new owner in Canada. A 19" seat was just far too big for me, even though it was a gorgeous saddle.

My current Siegfried is a 17.5" seat, so much more properly sized for me.

Yep, what you have is definitely a Stubben, and as you can see, they come back beautifully. Both of mine looked worse than yours before I cleaned and oiled them up.

You got such a great deal! It's definitely a Siegfried. 305 is probably a 30.5 (medium) tree.

Your probably right about the 305 because it is a medium tree. ( or so I was told )

Will a 30.5 cm work for your horse? Mine is a 31 cm and fits my tub of a TB very well.
