The saddles are by a French saddler, Malibaud (www.malibaud.com). As you no doubt noticed, they are essentially a McClellan, and we are mega-happy with them. In terms of weight they are amazing (6kg) and they fit our horses very nicely. They´re not a padded recliner seat for the rider, but they´re not uncomfortable either. They were about 850 euros each, rigging included but without stirrups. He did us a bit of a deal and added the fenders in for that and some spare rigging.
I´d have thought your old saddle would be perfect, if the tree suits the horse. The aeration via that central spaces is so important.
Do you already have the horse for your trip?
- I just took a look at your facebook page. Wow! What an adventure. I wanted to ask about your saddles. Who is the maker and how much did they set you back? I am planning a trip on the Great Western Trail in a couple years. I have an old McClellan I am restoring. Been wondering whether it might be just the thing for the trip.
