WE ARE SO happy and proud to have a new saddler! All my horses are from now on trained in the highest performing tack I have ever had the pleasure to use; the 124 years of experience German saddlery Stübben. I’ve known Stübben for the genuine quality since I was about 14 years old I think and put a Stübben bridle on my wish list to Santa Claus, but I didn’t know until recently how extremely high the quality, performance and innovative solutions they use.
Earlier this year I stared to doubt the saddlery I used to be with as I couldn’t really feel my horse’s backs as I wish to. I especially struggled on Caruso who’s long and tall and I really need to feel him to know what’s going on when we train. I know many riders function very technically, they don’t use their senses as much as I do and therefor are fine with harder saddles, but I truly feel my horses when I rider them and to have a brick wall between us is a problem. For me feeling my horses is my main source in figuring out what to do for them. I double checked that my old saddles were rightly measured more then once, which they were according to that brands values, but when Stübben contacted me a while back and offered me to try their saddles I totally found my missing link. Ah I’m just so incredibly grateful to ride in Stübben now and I can’t stress enough how important it is to have the right tack!
This has not just made Caruso better but it’s a clear difference on all three horses, they grew another whole size up only during our trial period of three weeks! & to sit Caruso’s trot is no longer a big deal. It’s all of a sudden even easier then rising. As it should be! I’m as you know the last person to state that the magic is in the gear, but ahh, I’m ready to admin it makes a TOTAL difference this time. Normal saddle tress are all solid so they don’t move at all, but the Stübben tree is flexible and moves just like the horse. I mean ! The leather is all organic and made of the highest quality you can find (only Gucci and Prada has access to the same level of quality) and it’s made 25% lighter then leather from other saddle bands, so it’s quite a significant amount lighter for your horse to carry every day. And there is so much more. Huge, huge thanks to Team Stübben, and I can’t wait to share my options as soon as my own saddles arrive!
