Dressage Saddles



Manufacturer: Kieffer
Model: Genf
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I purchased this saddle through Dover Saddlery for $699.99 on closeout clearance. It retails regularly for : $1,295.00..so it was a steal! I needed a dressage saddle for my tall thick built Hanoverian Cross and couldn't afford to pay over $1,000, so I found this one and luckily there was one left.

Likes: It's easy to clean and care for and is supposed to come with 3 changeable gullet plates. It is comfortable, has the right amount of knee-rolls that help you keep the classical dressage position yet doesn't make you feel "locked in". The synthetic SECU Material that Kieffer uses for the seat and the flaps is superior in helping me keep good grip. Last but not least, the price! ;)

Dislikes: I was really excited to get my saddle and was VERY upset when I found that the changeable gullet plates were NOT in the box with the saddle. I talked to Dover and they are getting back to me on it. EVERY saddlery that carries this model, Kieffer GENF, says in the product description that this saddle **COMES** with the 3 changeable gullets. KiefferUSA themselves, state that they do come with the saddles. Dover's website even said the gullets come with the saddle, BUT have since removed the product off their website due to there not being anymore of that model??? I am still waiting to hear from Dover Saddlery about this matter and I expect them to make it right.

Quality: Excellent quality. Wool stuffed panels, leather sweat flaps, billets and panels. Kieffer's New SECU Synthetic suede-like material for the seat and leg flaps for GOOD GRIP. The SECU Material is water/dirt proof and is EASY to clean and maintain. The channel between the panels is sufficient and provides ample room for the spine. Changeable gullet, which is VERY convenient!

Summary: I love this saddle and recommend it to others. I am upset about Dover not sending the gullet kit with the saddle as it was described on the website, but am going to hear back from them soon and hopefully get this issue resolved. Excellent German quality! :)
