Stubben Excalibur

When a company has been making saddles for over 115 years, it’s certain they know how to make the best saddle in the world.

This saddle is made of cow hide that is a full grain hide, and it’s designed with a single flap that has a squared cantle, and the seat is made of doubled leathers. Since the flap is integrated there is minimal space between rider and horse, and the additional padding on the knee rolls ensures the rider’s comfort on the legs and thighs. In addition the knee and calf blocks are added for additional support of the calves and knees.

Let’s take a look at how these exceptional Excalibur S Saddles are manufactured in Stans, Switzerland. They begin the process with selecting the highest quality full grained, vegetable tanned cowhide, which ensures the durability of the saddle. Next they attach the webbing to the tree to create the depth of the seat and to provide the flexibility and spring of the seat. The piping is then sewn between the jockey skirts and the seat leather and are both attached to the tree. The rear component is sewn to the panel to create the pouch that contains the wool flocking. The billets are attached to the webbing and the billet guards are added (these contain the width, model, and serial number).

The panels are filled with the wool flocking to absorb the sweat from the back of the horse as well as conform to shape of the back. The flap is then attached to the sides and in keeping with tradition; each flap is number and marked by the craftsman.

When looking for one of the finest quality saddles on the market today, the Stubben Excalibur is renowned worldwide as one of the best quality saddles.
