Purchase: I bought this saddle from Heritage Bespoke Saddlery's online. It had been a demo saddle, but was in new condition. I paid $1,300.00 including shipping for the saddle. I wanted a high quality saddle, but could not afford anything of this caliber in the US. Buying from Matt was an excellent experience. He altered the tree for me since the saddle was a 3, and my mare is a 2.5. He also sewed in shoulder gussets for me.

Likes: The seat is nice and deep, and the knee blocks are external and large. This saddle puts me in a great position without having to fight against it. I have had this saddle for over a year now, and it still looks brand new even though I ride in it at least 5 days a week. The leather quality is amazing.

Dislikes: I am drawing a blank here....I LOVE IT!!!

Quality: Wonderful. Great leather, perfect stitching, great wool flocking. I have had no issues with the saddle at all after a over a year of hard riding and showing in it.

Summary: First and foremost, if you are looking for a saddle contact Matt at Heritage Bespoke Saddlery. He will help you find something awesome...maybe even a Ryder like mine. Ryder makes a great saddle. I think you can only get them in the states under the brand Legacy through Dressage Extensions; however, you can find them in the UK. Buying from the UK is easy, and is often cheaper even with shipping.
