Model: Elite Equitation Saddle
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I ordered this saddle through Dover Saddlery online. I was not sure which saddle I wanted, however, so I took purchased it through their Test Ride program. It is a little bit redder in color than the catalog shows, but It is still very beautiful. I payed $895 for this saddle, but the test ride saddle that they sent had a small water mark on the seat. Just from that little discolored spot, I only had to pay $750. When I chose to keep the saddle, Dover sent me back the difference in cost, as well as the matching padded bridle.

Likes: I absolutely love this saddle. It is great for long-legged riders and the seat is extremely comfortable. The bridle matches perfectly and is neatly padded and fancy stitched. My horse loves it!

Dislikes: The coloring under the stirrup leathers rubs off, but is instantly restored with a good cleaning and oiling. Also, this saddle is like cardboard when it is new. It takes a lot of neatsfoot and rolling of the flaps, but it is definitely worth it.

Quality: The overall quality of this saddle is spectacular. I have received many compliments on it and have noticed a difference in my riding. I am very long from hip to knee, and this is one of the very few saddles that accommodates its length.

Summary: I recommends this saddle to everyone! Even if you do not ride equitation or have a long leg. It leaves you with a secure feeling when riding any style.
