Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I got the saddle new, through a reputable saddle fitter. I think paid about $1200.
Likes: Very comfy to sit in (never a sore back for the rider, even after long trail rides), and the leather feels like velvet. I love the wide gullet, which definitely gives the spine plenty of clearance.
Dislikes: Well, despite going through a saddle fitter, this saddle is way too wide for my horse. Also, for some reason I cannot for the life of me keep my leg back in it -- but that's probably just me.
Quality: I think the construction and quality are very good.
Summary: Really read between the lines when they say this saddle is for wide or flat-backed. This saddle is really best for drafts and halflinger types -- it's way too much saddle for an Arab, I think, even though Arabs can have round bodies and flat backs. The saddle looks disproportionately large on a fine- or medium-boned horse. Also, the panels are shaped for a wide flat back, so if your horse has a dippy back or curvy withers, this is not the saddle for your horse.
