    Default Regency Close Contact saddle

    I am looking at this saddle while my custom one comes in. It will come in about 12 weeks, and I just need a saddle to ride in while I wait. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this saddle or reviews? Here's a pic of it

    Those are cheaply made, low quality saddles, and it won't have a good resale value.

    For less money than that one costs new (<$300), I would look for a used, better-quality saddle (Crosby, Collegiate, Stubben, Courbette, etc).

    Hopefully you can find something that fits your horse reasonably well, and after your custom saddle arrives, the used saddle will not have lost much value (if any), and you can likely resell it for close to what you paid.

    I have one. Yes - it's a cheaply made, low quality saddle, and I'll probably have a hard time giving it away, but I like it. It fit the horse I was riding at the time I bought it, and better yet, I liked how it fit me.
