This is a great price on a new Stubben Saddle. Final Sale! There will be a $45 charge for shipping. The Maestoso combines four important features: looks, depth, comfort and close contact. This model is not a traditional Stubben dressage saddle. It is built on an ultra-deep seat and has a thin long knee roll. While the tree is still flexible and absorbs part of the rider?s weight, it allows the rider to sit very deep and provides a more secure seat. For those riders who prefer stronger support in the leg area, Stubben has developed the model ?Maestoso de Luxe?. This saddle retains the exceptional qualities already featured in the Maestoso model. Maestoso de Luxe is also made of full grain cow hide, but the saddle flap is covered with a rough upper leather. This leather guarantees a steady position of the thigh, better support, as well as convenience, and gives the saddle its particularly noble appearance. Moreover, the knee roll is distinctly more voluminous than on the classical "Maestoso", without blocking the rider?s knee at any time.
