As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Prestige Bellagio Close Contact Saddle is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite right I had high hopes for his saddle (ordered the demo), but unfortunately it fell short. It's a beautiful saddle and the leather is lovely and feels broken in right out of the box. The panels fit my horse and it has a nice wide channel, but it was too tight in the shoulders for him (the demo saddle was stamped as a 33 tree) and if it was any wider it would almost certainly sit too low on his withers. I love a flat seat and no blocks so I loved the balance of this saddle and the leather is super grippy, but like other reviewers I found the seat to be surprisingly firm and not as comfortable as I would expect for this price point. Although I do wonder if maybe the seat would soften after it was more broken in.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from prestige bellagio cc Beautiful look and leather , this saddle seemed to be made well. I found the seat to be somewhat hard and the gullet at the cantle a little to narrow.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice tacky feel to leather I actually returned the saddle after test ride. Not the right comfort level for for me in the seat even though it was a soft padded seat. Good wither clearance for horse

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous saddle---just didn't fit my horse. This is a beautiful saddle. The quality is outstanding in the leather, stitching and craftsmanship. Honestly, it blew another saddle I was trying (Stubben) out of the water in terms of quality. Unfortunately, it did not fit my narrow, high-withered OTTB and I mailed it back immediately. I loved the Smartpak test ride program and would use it again in a second. As always, SmartPak's customer service is second to none.
