My Official English Saddle Thread
 
And the hunt begins....

MW-W tree, 17-17.5", AP or CC... Could be interesting.

QHriderKE 09-26-2012 12:43 AM

Here's what I have on my mind right now:
From a Used Tack dealer:
Stubben Romanus 17" Wide for $250
Sattleri A/P 17" Wide for $300
17" Wintec Pro C/C is Adjustable, but comes only with the Med gullet $400
*waiting for pictures

And from a private seller:
17" Crosby Ian Millar Vision A/P $300
*waiting for pictures and gullet width

Depends what you want it for.
I have a 17" MW AP for sale. It is a Barnsby saddle.
I want 150 for it however it is in well used condition (i.e I wouldnt take it in the showring but it is fine for everyday)

All good saddles at fair prices. Go for what fits the horse and you the best.

I'd look into Stubben and Crosby, however I have to say the price on Stubben is suspiciously low (especially for the dealer who always add extra for the profit). Never heard of Sattleri, and I'm not fan of Wintec, but if it fits your horse then why not.

Barnsby is a nice brand too, but I wonder how much shipping will be from UK to US. :)

I assumed that "Sattleri" was supposed to be Sattlerei beim Kloster Schonthal, which is a good saddle. If it's actually something else, then I don't know.

I found an older Stubben for $99.00 on Craigslist. If someone else doesn't snatch it up, it may just be coming to my house. :wink:

Have you tried Craigslist? That's where I found my last 3 saddles (all Stubbens), and none of them were uber-expensive.

When I'm looking for saddles, I go to Ad Hunt'r which searches all Craigslist in the US. If you don't mind paying shipping fees, you can find some really great bargains.

I really want to see the pictures of all the saddles before making a decision...
