Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: After months of saddle shopping, I came across a Sommer saddle by complete accident. There are no Sommer dealers in my area and I knew nothing about this saddle or it's manufacturer. I took the saddle out on trial and fell in love. Decided that I wanted to order myself a bran new one instead of a second hand one. I acquired it new for 3290$.
Likes: The saddle sits me at a perfect angle. The knee rolls are not too big - yet they are very effective. My legs have freedom of movement - this saddles does not "lock" me into position. It allows me to use my aids with an ease I've never known before.
Dislikes: Honestly, my biggest problem with this saddle was finding a dealer - I really wish there was someone in my area... or at least in my part of the country!
Quality: Construction and materials are top quality. I love the "flex" tree - seems to really agree with my horse.
Summary: I love this saddle and I'm sure I'll enjoy it for years to come. It fits me very well, fits my horse very well. Quality is great. If you have the chance to try one... don't hesitate!
