Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle brand new online. Had been looking for a new saddle and have heard nothing but good things about Zaldi, so thought I would give it a try. I paid $1695.
Likes: I love nearly everything about this saddle! It is VERY close contact, my horse responds to very subtle cues with it, and he seems to be quite comfortable wearing it. He used to get a little pokey if I rode him hard several days in a row with the old saddle (probably a bit sore), not anymore, he is always very forward in this one. It fits him extremely well. The seat has great balance, my instructor commented straight away about how much better my leg hangs in this saddle.
Dislikes: Nothing really, at first I didn't care that much for the orange stitching on it but it grew on me fast, since I love the saddle so much.
Quality: This saddle is a middle-range Zaldi dressage saddle, even so it is very well made, as Zaldi saddles are known to be. Super quality leather, perfect stitching, I can see this saddle lasting a good long time. They don't "cheap out" on anything as many of the better known brands are now doing. I honestly don't know why this brand isn't more popular in the US (I've heard they are well known in Europe).
Summary: You get a really nice product for your money with this saddle.
