Reviews
Collegiate Honour Close Contact Saddle is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just bought this saddle, it did come a lot darker, like a true brown, but I was wanting to oil it darker anyway so it worked out. The only reason this has 4 stars because of how hard it was to go from the medium plate to the extra wide, I could not push it in and ended up having to use a clamp to get it down, but the mid-wide I was able to do by myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saddle, especially for the price. I bought this saddle last fall so I've been riding in it for about 6 months because the changeable gullet were on back order due to their California plant being shut down. The gullet change will take about 10 minutes and for me the first ti.e was about 30 minutes. The saddle feels well balanced and the leather is nice quality. Its very comfortable for me and has fit both my x-wide beast and my medium tree horse as well. I was able to pad up and use it on my old guy who's a little low in the back with a high wither. I didn't want to spend thousands on a saddle until I was able to ridemy horse for awhile and see how his back developed. Now I like this saddle so much I don't plan to go saddle shopping any time soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle for a great price! I've always been a fan of Collegiate, but I was a bit skeptical since they moved their manufacturing in recent years. I bought this saddle as a budget friendly alternative to my much older Crosby and Courbette. I wasn't expecting too much but I was very pleasantly surprised. The Medium gullet fits my OTTB quite well (although is somewhat snug in one or two spots) and I love that it's interchangeable as he starts to fill out. The design is quite pleasing to the eye and the seat is secure and grippy. I've tried it over fences and also on some very steep trails and have found it comfy and durable. The dye does bleed when it's new so don't use it with your best breeches or saddlepads right away. I've knocked a point off durability for that, but it's not the biggest deal in the world. I've gotten quite a few compliments on this saddle from my trainers and friends.
