Anyone Familiar With Regent Saddles?
My friend bought a 2h trailer full of tack for $300 (amazing I know he was so lucky there were 2 western saddles an english saddle some halters 3 bridles and a few other misc things.)
Well he doesn't ride english and is looking to sell the english saddle...the plate says "Regent Saddles" the lettering is red with a red castle behind the words... is anyone familiar with this brand? If so how much do they normally go for? It's in very very good condition just a little dusty.
I LOVED the Regent dressage saddle I rode in.
If you don't want it, I'd be interested :P
The girl who owned the one I rode in was asking 700$ for hers. Looking online though Im finding a bunch of cheap 300 ones so I dont know as far as pricing
Regent saddles are Asian made junk. I would not use one, buy one, or take one if it was given to me.
If you want to try and sell it, it would be worth about $50.
Luvs2Ride- really hmm...well then again I don't know much about english saddles. = P We set it on his big Paint today and it was pretty comfortable. We;re really happy with the western saddles though...one is a Textan and the other is a Billy Cook I can't believe someone would practically just give those away and they're practically brand new...a few scuffs but other than that they're great.
I wonder what we're gonna do about the english saddle then hmmm
luvs2ride, ive seen that in all the new regents I see online.
From experience I can say they do have at least one well made, quality leather brand of saddle but Im wondering why everything I find now is crap.
When I was looking to buy the saddle I mentioned, I came across something saying Regent saddles were selling under a new name though? Im not sure why there's such a huge contrast between their well made saddles and then junk
this one seems pretty good, we are going to take it to my friends house to see what he thinks of it...it seems like a good saddle but like i said i don't know much about english saddles.
Take some pictures and post them here for us. I can tell you by looking at the style and close ups of the leather if the saddle is decent or junk. Does it have a "made in" stamp on it anywhere?
Luvs2ride--I'm going back to the barn on wednesday I'll look for a "made in" stamp and take some pics then post them for you to look at.
Oh! And I actually ran into a dressage one at a tack shop and it seemed actually pretty decent. Nothing like a Bates but good for someone who can't afford a big name brand. The only thing I can see Regent saddles could be any good for are decoration, breaking youngsters, or a spare for guests
