    Because the Close Contour uses a boot leather and shape, fitting them IS like fitting a boot rather than a typical chap. A given size, even though the chart says it should fit, doesn't always. ...

    Thank you! I always liked the quality of Stubben bit wasn't sure how some of the newer models have been received. I don't know anyone with one and have not ridden in one in 20+ years.
  9. Do "we" have an opinion on newer Stubben saddles?

    As stated, any opinions/thoughts on the new Stubben saddle line?

    I had a chance to sit in one and liked the feel. Any idea how they wear or break in? I sat in a Portos and liked it. I'm just...

    Old Money (def) Family money so old that no one can remember who first stole it.

    Money takes on a patina with age. In its youth it is garish, ill gotten and often illicit.

    If it is with a shop that generally sells trendy (French) saddles, it is probably getting lost in the shuffle. People going to those site/shops are looking for the CWD/Antares/Devoucoux and not your...

    The 3 races were not united until a member of the press decided that War Admiral had won a "Triple Crown of sorts" after the Belmont. Many years the Derby and Preakness were run on the same day. It...

    The little tab that snaps behind the outside back of your knee is designed to hold them up. The inner liner of that strap has a hole in it. Put the zipper tab through the hole and then snap the tab.

    Some are nicer draping than others. The Ariat, RJ and Tredstep are the easiest fitting, IMO. Some of them drape less well and have a somewhat rumpled look, which I don't care for.
