Manufacturer: Sensation
Model: Dressage Trail Saddle - custom
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I bought this from ride with the saddle pad, custom sized flaps all for under $1,500.

Likes: My mare moves beautifully in this saddle, and it is extremely comfortable for both horse and rider. After having several saddlers come out and fail to fit my mare, I turned to treeless. It is fantastic for my back as well as my mare's. The leather is very nice, and I really enjoy riding in it! Its great for trails, some dressage person, and the occasional hop over a cross rail. The manufactures and dealers were very helpful.

Dislikes: This is not a show saddle to say the least. Their new dressage show saddle might be better if you want to show, but it still would not have the streamlined look of a treed show saddle. Also, I would really like to see a little less velcro. It makes things easy, but it is also not very professional looking. Finally, the stirrups in the free-swing (dressage style) position is quite bulky under the thigh. I bought the stirrup rigging from Freeform, and this solved the problem, but I would rather not have had to shell out the extra 90 bucks. Separately, the saddle arrived 3 months late. I was given a saddle cover to compensate, but it was a LONG wait.

Quality: The leather is very nice. There were a few puckers in the seams, but the flattened out after a bit of riding. The leather is a bit marked up, but I think a bit of leather cleaner would take care of that. So far, everything is put together very nicely, and it has put up with six months of heavy riders.

Summary: Very nice product for those who cannot find a suitable treed saddle, or for those with back problems.
