Like New 17" Crump Jumping Saddle

Like new 17" Crosby Jumping Saddle.  Like sitting on a pillow.  I've owned this saddle for about 5 years.  It was brand new when I got it at $1500.  I've rode in it maybe a dozen times and only at shows.  I am getting married in October and have decided that I don't need a saddle I barely use, especially as I have 5 other jumping saddles.  I'm asking $950 including shipping costs, but am willing to negotiate to any reasonable offer.  Will post pictures shortly.  You can contact me here or at…See More

Profile Information

A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
Currently I have recently graduated from Columbia College for Business Administration with a double major in International Business and Business Management. I have been a professional trainer for the past 4 years, and have been competing eventers and hunter/jumpers for the past 8 years. While in high school I branched out and competed in High School Rodeo and speed events! Currently I am breaking and training horses at Bell Oaks Farm for Klaus Biesenthal, and have opened my own business: Soft Touch Training. There we do mostly dressage and driving horses and ponies. I am also taking horses in training at home. Training is $400 a month and includes board. I am available for lessons: Private lessons are $50 an hour and group lessons are $35 with a minimum of 3 per group. Lessons include dressage, hunters, eventing, and basic riding lessons.

For more information please contact me here or at or call me at (815) 291-3403.

Do you have any pets?
4 dogs, multiple cats, and my horses of course!

Hey Melinda,

Spirit certainly is very well put together, what a wonderful "engine" she has! She is almost identical in body color to Murphy, I am partial to that:) I will let you know about how the horse buying journey goes. See you at the horse fair!!!!!
Cheers, Anke:)

Hi Melinda,
If you're training for Klaus Biesenthal, then you must be in the Rockford, IL area. Right? I grew up not far from there in Janesville, WI. Looks like you're having fun with your horses! Let me know if I can every be of service either as a photographer or web designer.
Take care!
