Collegiate Saddle Reviews – Dressage, Jump, English etc.

Collegiate saddles are the perfect saddle for competitive riding.

These saddles are well used and are famous for their fine leather, top-quality craftsmanship, and budget-friendly prices.

This explains why they are the official saddle of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association.

With Collegiate dressage saddles, you and your horse both have an enjoyable and comfortable ride.

Collegiate Saddle Reviews

Customer: I ordered my Collegiate dressage saddle off eBay today, and have to say, for £260 I’m super pleased with it.

It comes with soft and supple leather, the panels are wide and it’s not hugely built up – Just the way l Like it.

I dislike huge amounts of saddle underneath me anyway.

Where are Collegiate Saddles Made?

I know they are made abroad, I think in Argentina but not completely sure.

As earlier stated, I’m a big fan and I love the saddle I got off eBay online marketplace.

It’s super comfortable, and I’ve always felt secure in it, regardless of the fact that the one I own is too large for me.

Plus, it happened to fit all 3 of my horses, from her Saddlebred cross/skinny-chested Arab, Gabs, to her tiny Arabian, Nicki, and up to her big-boned Thoroughbred, Rocky.

High-Quality Equestrian Saddles


For the price they offer, their saddles are of great quality and will give you value for your money.

I also find them to be one of the most comfortable saddles I have ridden in.

I have tried other top brads like Antares, Butet, etc but always keep my Collegiate well.

Note: Collegiate saddle seats are rather “cushiony” and this is why I love them the more.

I HAVE NEVER HAD ONE THAT IS A SLIPPERY FEELING. Collegiates hold their value pretty well I think.
