I'm looking at a Stubben Scandica and wondering what others think of this saddle. It is in nice shape and $475. I currently ride in a Niedersuss but I'm getting a new horse and the KN doesn't fit her.
If you like Stubbens, you can't go wrong with any style.
I have never ridden in a Stubben. Unfortunately I live in the middle of nowhere (southwest montana) and a saddle fitter, sitting in lots of saddles, etc. are not options for me. Just wondering what people's overall opinions are, especially comparing for someone who loves Neidersuss. I also really like my friend's Albion Style saddle, alas it is too narrow for the new beast!
How old is the Stubben? The newer models are more cushy than the older ones, and a lot of people dislike the firm seats of the older model saddles.
Hmm not sure, I'll have to find out. Yes a hard seat is not so desirable to me. I've recently lost 20lbs of cushioning back there! :)
I think they are a bit like kieffer, uncomfortable and you'll need padded pants ;)
I wouldn't call them uncomfortable, but they're sure as heck not cushy.
I have an older Siegfried. Yes, the seat is very firm, but I wouldn't call it uncomfortable unless you're used to the cushy seats they're putting on the new saddles nowadays.
Now that I see the words you're using and translate them I totally agree!
"hard seat" was the translation from Swedish :lol:
(I try to get better at English and I'm also a bit tired of the Swedish horse forum)
I have ridden in a Thorowgood synthetic for the past 4 years, but recently I've been riding a lot in a Stubben Roxane. At first I found it almost too firm, but now I prefer it.
Thanks for all the tips. A good friend has a Siegfried she is going to let me borrow for a bit so I can try it out and see. Another gal at the barn also offered up her Passier to try out, not sure I can afford it if I like it though! I'm a little more of a fan of a soft seat so it will be interesting to see how the Stubben feels to me.
