    Comments about HDR Luxembourg Close Contact Saddle:

    I love this saddle! It improves my position both on the flat and over fences. I have received so many compliments on it, and I couldn't be any happier! The leather is the perfect shade and such great quality. The price was perfect especially for the quality. I honestly cannot think of one bad thing about it.

        If riding under a trainer, the trainer could provide the best information. The average adult size saddle is about a 17 ½" .
        • Youth or Small Adult 15"-16 ½" seat
        • Average Adult 17" seat
        • Large Adult 17 ½"-18" seat
        • Extra Large Adult 18" and over seat
        Generally, a horse with higher or average withers would be a regular gullet. Lower withered horses, wider built breeds would need to go with a wider gullet.

        Slightly better than average but every horse is different. You can have it for a 10 day trial if it does not fit we will pick the saddle up.
