Used Dressage SaddlesSecond-hand dressage saddles
A few of the top names we stock are Amerigo, Lovatt & Ricketts, Albion, Custom Saddlery, Prestige, Crosby, Marcel Toulouse, Lauriche, Antares, Passier and many more.
Seats in this class show little or no benefit. Jumpers below this value have only very slight and usual abrasion. An excellently conditioned seat was easily used and very well-tended. Typical saddles of this type have slight to medium friction on the keys of the boot and stapes, usually with more friction on the underside of the keys.
Slight colour variations may occur on the surface of the hide due to perspiration, wetness or general abrasion, often on the keys, but usually on the seats and panel. The saddles may have some visual but slight friction on the edges of the seats. One or more of the blocs may have a very small stain on the surface of the hide for this evaluation, but only if the blocs showing this are under a trap.
The saddles have a strong friction on the keys. It can have fissures in the upper part of the hide, mostly fissures, often on the seats and panelling. With saddles of this type, colour changes due to perspiration, precipitation or general abrasion may occur. The saddles below this classification may require significant repair.
The saddles often have considerable cracking and leathers can be wet. FUS usually cannot approve saddles that are subject to the conditions of fairness, but we can help you with repair work to get these saddles into a saleable state. Woollen flocking: It is the most traditionally way to fill the upholstery.
The saddler describes many kinds of flocks as woollen. It ranges from a number of different synthetics to a number of amber. There' ll always be a discussion and there will be no clear consensus on which is better, but the higher saddles we wear will generally be filled with the best whatever is used.
Woollen flock is in need of care. After a few years (and sometimes even less), it may cure and agglomerate. If used on one type of saddle, it tends to adapt to the horse's body over the course of the years, so it may be more difficult to use these saddles on several different saddles than on the other two, although this is not always the case.
Its great advantage is that it can be adjusted by a semitrailer mechanic. If you buy a used seat, they are sometimes ready for immediate use, but you should be aware that you may need a fitting to get the desired shape. A number of woollen sheets also have a felt or felt liner as a cushion between the woollen and the sheet surfaces that touch the horses.
Replacing and reflocking all woollen in a nut in the US usually runs from $200-350 and involves the plate being discarded and resewed, usually in the saddlery. The tweak of available wools varies from about $75-300, with a vast array of costs due to different call rates for sheds.
Easier customizations, which usually include the addition of yarn to certain areas and sometimes the elimination of other areas, are usually done on site. The majority of our dressage saddles are woollen-tipped. "``French Style`` foam / latex: Foaming against woollen is a compromise. The foam is elastic and virtually maintenance-free as long as the seat is suitable for your horses.
It is easier to use these saddles on more than one horse because the mousse does not adapt to the horse and stays there. It is not settled with mousse. For other cases where the board requires more space, the initial boards are entirely rejected and new ones modeled.
It is important that the seat fits directly out of the stall, but another advantage is that it is often simpler to find a seat over several different saddles. Nearly every semitrailer in France is stuffed with plastic foams. With the high-end saddles we have, this is the best of the best in the world.
Foaming is the traditional flock in France, while cotton is usually the English/German one. Lauriche is an example, an British nut that is always made with expanded plastic plates. Costs for adjusting or retrofitting a sheet of expanded plastic range from $250 to $900, according to who does the work.
Upholsterers demand less than the OEM saddlery, but more difficult to find in the US than in France are independents who specialize in foams. Foamed flock is also common on show jumpers that are not of Frensh ancestry. As a rule, conventional woollen mechanics are not big foams enthusiasts, because there is not much they can do with it except swim with felt.
Two major models (really brands) of flocks are used. Cair" is one of them, which we find in the Bates and Vintec saddles. Every kind of flock has its own benefits and traps. Elegantly variable, the Flamenco panelling is ideal for distributing heat on the horse's back. They can be made very softer or firmer as required.
Flair system is made up of four bubbles, two on each side of the seat..... It gives a bouncy riding feeling that varies according to the setting of the seat, but is always present. This can take some getting used to, and this is one of the greatest motivations why we think that we do not see it everywhere, although it is great for the back of the stallion.
Under some climatic conditions, the expansive and shrive atmosphere in the plates can lead to changes in the saddles' fitting during the seasons. It is a little more complicated than with cotton, but simpler than with foams to find semi-trailer installers to set the Flair-Panel. Each producer has a different system for the beam sizes. It' not only the real width and the distance of the points of the trees that make up the width of a nut.
It' also the form and corner of the beam opening, together with the plate width and form. Although we always indicate the "official" or postmarked sizes indicated by the producer, we are sorting the saddles on-line according to a more general system for reasons of consistence. It is unlikely that a middle width will work in all stamps of this width if your mare has an average width corresponding to the marked width in a stamp.
The Bates Oesophagus, together with a professional optical evaluation, will provide saddles with a treetop and describe them inline. Because the form also affects the overall dimension, this system is still not perfected, but all along the line it will probably never be it. Inkonsistent treecontinuous trees and a good grip on all saddles is a big factor why we recommend used saddles.
If you buy second-hand, try the existing MAN MANUFACTURER MANUFACTURING Cradle. In fact, there are differences in the fitting between two saddles from the same manufacturer, although they are the same-sized. You do not know what you will get until you have a special seat made for you and your horses.
Adapting the nut is at the same time arts and sciences. This does not necessarily mean that we want to market your seat to enable you to do exactly what you do. Once your horse has been delivered to FUS and personally checked by us, we will contact you to agree and approve the real list prices.
As a rule, if you demand more than the store will carry, we will not take delivery of the respective semi. At all times we want to be sure that we can resell a seat to the owner's complete contentment before we agree to have it. In most saddles some information / code is embossed into the calf, mostly under a cover.
These stamps can often tell us many facts about your horse, often stating its precise years. Knowledge of this information can be very useful in assessing a likely sales margin before you see your bike personally, so please add it if it is not too big for you.
We charge a lump sum of 25% for saddles. Shipping costs for accessoires (saddle belts, leather, iron, padding etc. if accepted) are 40%. As a rule, we only receive hardware from clients who also send in a nut, unless several high-quality non-saddle articles are shipped. Our company can only take hardware that corresponds to the good or better state of our saddles.
When we find a fixable issue with your seat, we will contact you..... Otherwise, the seat may have to be handed back at your cost. Every seat must have good and secure truncheons. Saddles for consignments must be reasonably neat and in good or better state.
If we believe they have been incorrectly stated on the shipment request, we retain the right to refuse any saddles we receive. Each of our saddles is delivered with a 5-day test phase during which the customer may try on and horse back on. Full payment is obtained and the customer is liable for any damages to the seat during the probation time.
A cheque will be sent to you by post within 15 working day after the confirmation of the purchase of your seat to the postal adress you have indicated for the retail value less comission. We insure your saddles every single times they are sent out for testing. Once you are signed in to your profile, you can click this hyperlink to modify, remove, and perform previously stored Find.

Searching is not stored if you are not signed in at the moment of searching. Your research will not be stored when you register a new user or log in using this hyperlink.
If we then display all the saddles that meet your requirements, you will receive an e-mail notification. They can store as many queries as you want and can be as generic or generic as you want. Alternatively, you can call up your previously stored queries via the "Manage stored queries" in " My account".
Here you can create new ones, modify, delete or run old ones to see the currently available results. It is strongly recommended NOT to use the rigorous stored searching function so that you do not run the danger of losing a good opportunity. If you are looking for a 17 1/2" seating capacity, for example, you will also see those that we think are only slightly small (17 1/4") and those that we think are only slightly large ("17 3/4").
When searching by treeview under "Medium-Wide", results are displayed that lie between medium-width and medium-width, between medium-width and full.
