Fidelio Dressage
Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Duett
Model: Fidelio Dressage
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I purchased this Duett Fidelio new in August 2008 from Trumbull Mountain Tack Shop. My mare has an odd shaped back (she is wide, but has withers!) so I was having trouble fitting a saddle to her.

Likes: I love the fit of the Duett! The wider gullet really helped get a perfect fit for my mare, without having to resort to pads and risers. This saddle is VERY comfortable! I love it! I also like the adjustability of the knee rolls. It comes with three sizes and you can change them as you see fit. I tried out the largest size just to see how it felt and loved it! But I can also change back to a small knee roll in the future if need be.

Dislikes: For the money I spent, I was not impressed with the overall leather quality. It is not terrible, but it is not what I expected either. Within three rides there were huge rubs on the leather where my legs are. Had this saddle not fit both my mare and myself so well, I would not have bought it to be honest. Also while I love the adjustable knee rolls, they are held in with velcro. This saddle is not very old so it is not yet an issue, but I wonder if the velcro will be hard to keep clean as it ages.

Quality: Overall the saddle is well made, but I am not 100% happy with the quality of the leather.

Summary: Bottom Line? This is a great saddle for wide horses, it is comfortable, and it is affordable. The only real drawback is the leather.
