    Please help me to identify a Stubben.

    This is my sister's saddle. She really likes it, but the seat is too small (16") and she would like to find the same saddle in a larger seat.

    The billet guard definitely says Siegfried. It is also stamped with two numbers "24830" and "32".

    The metal tag says "Made in Switzerland" and underneath the tag "CC" is stamped.

    Any help with identifying the flap style would be great!

    Thanks!

    Looks identical to the Seigfried VSD I recently bought my younger daughter. 32cm tree. I PMed you a useful contact to confirm

    Thanks Jim. I just sent an email to contact.

    You think the "32" is the width? I would have thought it was, but this saddle seems so narrow to be a 32" width.

    Heard back from Stubben, and I was told it is a Siegfried VSS.

    Any idea on an age range?

    Yep, I was going to say VSS. The 32 is the width, but it's 32 cm. They should also be able to tell you an approximate age range from Stubben.

    Yes, cm, that was a mistake on my part. Good catch.

    I have a 34cm Duett, and it seems much much wider than her Stubben. I guess you can't go by numbers.

    32cm / 43 cm: It's length. From tree point on one side up over the pommel and down the other side to the end of that tree point. Or something like that. That's why it makes no real sense, and one 32 cm is not the same fit as a different 32 cm saddle or brand's 32 cm. :-)

    How come Stubben didn't say what year it was made? They should know that from the serial number.

    Okay, that makes sense by not making sense! I have a draft cross and my 34cm is a tad big. My sister has WB and the 32cm Stubben was too narrow.

    I'll pester them again. Thanks!

    My contact at Stubben indicated that when a saddle is BC..."before computers"...it's hard to identify exactly when it was made by serial number because they don't actually have those records handy. My initial request to them was to date it by serial number. They can use other clues, however. For example, on the older Seigfreid I bought my daughter recently, he said definitely pre-1994 because of the suede knee pads and estimated late 1970s/early 1980s from other clues he didn't go into. He also asked about the color of the stirrup bars...gold or sliver...as that apparently is an age clue.

    I would guess this one is BC too. What color are your stirrup bars?
