Sorrano Close Contact Jumping saddle 17" NEW!
Sorrano saddles are hand-crafted by master-saddlers in Argentina; they are made of the finest, hand selected, curried and tanned European and South American leathers and materials to exacting specifications. The materials must hold up to the rigours of daily use and look good in the show ring so durability, strength and beauty are equal considerations as they develop each saddle from the tree up. Argentina is the hub of the South American equestrian scene (although Rodrigo Pessoa might argue the point) and the polo saddles made there are second to none! They make the finest polo equipment in the world! The Argentinians also create very high quality, world-class tack. Every SORRANO Saddle is designed and styled in the tradition of the world's leading saddlemakers and each model was developed with the input top-level professionals, to ensure both quality and performance.
This auction is for a Sorrano "Fleur-De-Lis" Close Contact Show Jumping saddle (also great for your eventing kit). I was not on a budget when I bought this saddle and I chose it because it represented great value for the money and the quality is as good as, or better than, the other comparable "big-name" saddles it was lined up next to in the shop (and it was the most comfortable). The leather has a soft, broken in feel, and the attention to detail and pride of craftsmanship shows in the stitching, colour-matching of the leathers, and overall quality, unlike many of the saddles made for better known "big names" that are now made in India, China, or Pakistan, but still selling at Euro prices.
This is an elegantly designed saddle and every bit as nice as much more expensive saddles! The seat is designed make it easy for anyone to find their seat, develop better balance and correct body positioning. It also fits a variety of body types well, and it was the only saddle that fit my thoroughbred perfectly. The saddle was purchased for around $1,200. I loved this saddle and unfortunately NEVER had a chance to use it after it was fitted. It has sat in a climate controlled room since purchased and still has the "new saddle" smell. We are moving and I have sold my horse, so all my tack has to go. This saddle would make a great Christmas gift for anyone who needs a high quality close contact show jumping saddle that won't break the bank. Since it hasn't been used and has the tags, and will last for many years. It includes the blank brass name tag to have engraved for the cantle.
