    Default Steal of a deal

    Stubben Wotan for 95.00

    If it were a 32 cm, I would grab it. Great saddle!

    Years a go in our local paper someone advertised a Hermes saddle for sale for $300-wow! I called and asked about the saddle to be sure it was an Hermes and seller assured me it was. I made arrangements to see it, cash in hand and when she pulled it out it was NOT an Hermes! A Hussar of something I never heard of! Seller was a bit annoyed when i told her I didn't want it since it was not what she said it was. So watch those cheap saddle ads!

    Well, that's definitely a Stubben, and German made. Quite the deal. Could use a little TLC but it'll come back nicely. Those old German made saddles last just about forever.

    WOW. Wonder how much it would cost to ship it to North Carolina??? I LOVE old school stubbens.

    Between $35 and $40 would be my guess. So you'd get a quality, German made Stubben for about $135. Still quite the deal.

    If it were a 17.5", I'd be all over it like a cheap suit! It's the right tree size, but I'm not sure I could stuff my substantial bootie into a 17".

    I used to have an old wotan...a little uncomfortable at first (hard seat) but one of the best saddles I've even owned. Puts you in to perfect seat, makes you use your legs correctly, and they last forever!!

    I'm so tempted...Need to figure out what tree it is though.

    Tree size? It's a 31".

    I don't know the actual tree type they used.
