    Default Regent Saddles? Anyone with experience?

    I am looking at a used Regent saddle that is on consignment at my local tack store. It seems to be in good shape but I am not familiar with the brand. Any one have any thoughts on these saddles?

    Regent is a fairly inexpensive brand. You can get them new $200-500. Look at Libertyville Saddle Shop (just google that, and you'll find their website.)

    Some of the models are decent, others can be uncomfortable. I have one I use as the first saddle on a young horse, at $200 I don't care if it gets rolled on. It's an old Bremen model, a copy of the Keiffer all purpose Munich. Fairly comfortable, but the billet straps are very thick and you can feel them through the flap if you're riding for long.

    Actually I just checked the Saddle Shop site...looks like they are getting rid of the line. Some are marked down to $49!

    Holy crap! I am so glad I posted this! The one at the tack shop is listed for $219. Apparently above what it should be. I need one for my son who is taking dressage lessons and I have no idea how long that will last so I do not want to invest a ton of money. At the same time, he swims in my saddle so he needs something to fit him. Thank you for the site! DH thanks you even more!

    Inexpensive, low quality brand. I would check Ebay for used Stubben, Crosby - they can be found for a few hundred dollars and will be MUCH nicer than Regent
