Purchase: I bought this saddle used from a woman who boarded at the barn where I was taking lessons. This woman buys top-notch tack so even tho I was not familiar with the brand JRD, I figured it had to be good if she owned it. I did not yet have a horse(!!), but I sat in the saddle and immediately fell in love. I paid $1,050 for it and decided I had to find a horse to fit the saddle instead of the saddle to fit the horse!

Likes: The saddle is quite deep and made so your position is correct when on the horse. It is one of the most comfortable I have ever sat...very comparable to a Schleese JES Dressage in my opinion. The leather is very high quality...I usually clean the saddle with a light cleaner after riding and condition it about every 6 mos or so. Honestly, after 3 years of use (and I bought the saddle used so longer than that!), there is very little wear or scratching. I get many compliments!

Dislikes: The only thing I can say I don't like is that the saddle has brass fittings where the grab strap is...I prefer silver just to coordinate with my stirrups. That is the only thing I can say I wish were different!

Quality: Quality is tops! I have had no issues with loose stitching, cracking or scratching of the leather. I have had the saddle for 3 years...ride in in 4-5 times a week.

Summary: I had not heard of JRD when I was looking at this saddle. I found a phone number of the manufacturer online and phoned to see if I could get more information. I received a return phone call immediately. The gentleman was very friendly and helpful. I felt confident after talking with him that I was getting a quality saddle...and I was right!
