    Red face Help me identify my Stubben Dressage saddle!

    Hi everyone! I just purchased this saddle for $80.... yes... $80. I couldn't believe it! It truly is in beautiful working condition. I am trying to figure out what model it is now. I've e-mailed Stubben North America, but I thought I'd see if anyone could take a crack in identifying it It has hunter green buttons btw... not blue. The link below has pictures!

    It doesn't look like my scandica. I think, but can't remember what color my buttons are lol. I believe the green is older but I could be wrong. Nice purchase though

    It is a Stubben Romanus.
    It is made for the long legged rider.

    Not necessarily....

    I purchased a stubben siegfried VSS that I have guesstimate was made mid 70's to mid 80's based on the nail head style. It was in new (never used) condition so I could clearly read the serial number. I emailed Stubben and they said their computer records don't go back that far, so they couldn't tell me anything.

    I spoke to a number of people as they passed me around to find someone that remembered the '81 (or older) saddle, i.e. that was the last year the saddle was made in Germany ...

    What are the letters on the billet guard? There appear to be two visible letters at the end of what should be the model name on the billet guard.

    It does look very much like a Romanus.

    Third vote for the Romanus. It looks just like the one a friend of mine recently had up for sale (not on ebay, I don't think). Neither she nor I have long legs and I loved the saddle--especially the flat seat!
    Rack on!

    Could be a Romanus... but there is an even older model it looks like, which is the Parsival.

    I also think it is a Romanus. I bought my 1st one in 1990 & it was made in Germany - but I had to import it myself (the ones you bought in the U.S. at that time were manufactured in Switzerland, but the ones sold in Germany were still made there.

    And the nice Stubben folks did have it in their records.

    For comparison this is a 1972 Parzival:
