Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Prestige
Model: Grand Dressage
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I used to work in a tack shop, so I know quite a bit about saddles. I bought my first Prestige saddle (the Hippos, now called the Pacific), and I absolutely loved it. When I had to sell it (didn't fit my new horse), I decided to buy another Prestige, and went with the Grand Dressage, as I had sat in it several times and fell in love with it. I only paid $1300 because I worked at the tack shop, but normally they sold for $2300.

Likes: The Prestige saddles hold their value extremely well. When I sold my first Prestige saddle, I got nearly what I paid for it. The Prestige Grand Dressage is an exceptionally well-made saddle. The leather is very soft, and the seat is extremely comfortable. The knee rolls look huge, I know, but they really aren't a hindrance at all. I get compliments all the time about how gorgeous the saddle is.

Dislikes: The only thing I don't like is the suede underneath the saddle--I hate suede. It's so hard to clean! But, it isn't visible on the horse, so I can't complain much about that. Other than that, it's a wonderful saddle!

Quality: At the time, this was the top-of-the-line of the Prestige dressage saddles. It is constructed very well, and the leather is very soft and supple. I have the double stratum version of the leather, which I love. Don't ride this saddle in the rain! Or at least if you do, wipe it off immediately. My seat has water spots on it, which never happened with my first Prestige.

Summary: Overall, I'm very impressed with Prestige saddles, and I love the Grand Dressage. I have had to contact customer service at Prestige through e-mail, and they were very helpful. My saddle has fit several horses very well (it's a 32cm tree, which is basically a medium). My next saddle will likely be another Prestige.
