    Default Stubben Saddle - how to identify?

    Does anyone know how to identify a stubben saddle? I think mine says Rhinegold??? Does this mean anything to anyone? I want to try to sell it on ebay as no longer fits my horse but brought it second hand myself and have no idea what sort it is other than its a jumping saddle opposed to gp!!! Can anyone help?? also value?? any ideas? its in fairly good condition but quite old i would imagine? I have been onto ebay and searched under stubben and they seem to make between 100 and 300 for second hand but that is dependant on type...

    Stubbens are handmade and you can generally tell by the way they are put together, particularly at the back by the gullet and cantle. Stubbens often have a plate on the back of the cantle saying "stubben". The newer ones have blue spots on the skirts, an older one has the symbol of stubben. Underneath the skirt there will be the saddle-makers plate. Anyone who is familiar with Stubbens will know one immediately!

    Isn't Rhinegold a cheapy saddle make? Or am I confusing it with the other Rhinegold which makes cheaper versions of things?

    It would have Stubben written somewhere! I have a stubben that is about 25 yrs old and you can still make out stubben on the buckle guards and it has a silver plate under the stirrup guard flaps whatever they are called which says stubben.

    hi tia,

    no its defo a stubben has stubben on the brass plate on the back and the stubben symbol on the little circular pin things by the stirrup bar.

    I wanted to try to find out what type of stubben it is i.e. a parcival, siegfried etc??


    Stubben is printed over the buckle guard under the saddle flap but it also says Rhinegold...have done a search on google for Stubben rhinegold but nothing is coming up!!!..unless its imitation stubben!!!!! ahhhhh!

    How do you think i could find out what type it is??

    Maybe they used to make a model called Rhinegold then? I don't remember it, but that isn't saying much LOL!!

    Can you post a photo on here of it? Maybe we can help you further if we can see what it looks like?

    Are you sure it doesnt say Stubben Rhineland?

    Just a thought as ive never heard of a Stubben Rhinegold but Stubben are German and thats also known as Rhineland.
    Kindness and love costs nothing, but the respect it earns is priceless.

    LOL!! Well it's definitely Stubben .

    I'd think you could get over 200 if you clean it up....perhaps more! I'd put it on Ebay if I was you.
