Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: Purchased on E-Bay for $350. Wanted a dressage saddle for my very wide, round gelding.
Likes: The craftsmanship is good quality. It was fairly comfortable and put you in a good dressage position.
Dislikes: It no way fit my wide, round horse. It did fit another horse that is not as wide rather well, however this saddle was not purchased for that particular horse. I found the seat not very deep, a little on the hard side, though it was secure with the somewhat grippy material it is made with. Really didn't like the way the panels are constructed. The rear of the saddles panels point into the horses back.
Quality: Construction is decent. Material is synthetic suede-like and grippy. I feel this saddle rivals the Wintec easily in construction, except for the pointy panels.
Summary: I had high hopes for this saddle and came away disappointed in its fit on my muttom withered horse. It does not fit the truly round horse well. It needs to be "U" shaped to succeed in fitting a truly broad backed animal.
