    Default Steal of a Deal- Stackhouse saddle on CL

    I always see folks on COTH raving about these DG Stackhouse saddles- I happened to see this one on Craigslist- It looks nearly brand new and they are only asking $1100. It's exactly my size and I would love to snap it up myself, but financially it's not feasible for me right now...

    I am in no way affiliated with the saddle or sellers, just thought I would pass it along so maybe someone can get a good deal!

    It's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got.

    Eeek, I hope it isn't stolen!?! There was a thread awhile back about a break in at LA equestrian center and a bunch of saddles were stolen.

    There are several on ebay - under 400 for an older looking one, to 1000 for a brand new one that seems very much like the one in your link. No bids. What is so special about them?
    Built on old Prix de Nations tree - is that a good thing?

    Dunno what you mean by built on an old Prix de Nation's tree.

    Stackhouse saddles are custom made beginning with a bare tree put on your horse's back to find the size and shape the fits. Then you're measured and the saddle is hand made for you and your horse. It's the true "custom" as opposed to the customized options available in other high-end brands. They are beautiful saddles, well balanced, etc. But, of course, it has to fit you and your horse and when you're buying one that belongs to someone else, you're in the same boat of guessing if it will fit or taking it on trial.
