R 2.999,00 Décathlon
way cheaper than other shops but as good as 2000 euro saddles
Good value stop-gap/spare saddle for light hacking/ warm up/dreadful weather with flexible tree. Easy to clean and nice look, liked the material. Downside, tried 3. Issues -top layer of right saddle flap wrinkles up on use and then digs in knee when riding - obviously a manufacturing issue as left saddle flap didn't do it. Had this happen on two saddles. The other (3rd) saddle had stitching coming undone on first ride at front of right panel just below point of tree. Pity, as very comfy for horse and rider.
Comfy, good fit, nice stirrups, light, wipe clean
Has three - all faulty so returned sadly.
I bought this saddle for my 16.3hh gelding, he is only 5 and I t hought this would be a good saddle to start training him with, I was a bit unsure because it wasn't a well known brand but it looks very smart on him.
