Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I bought it from a tack shop in MD. It was discounted to about $400, but it retails for $799.
Likes: It's decent. It's a great saddle for low level dressage riders or schooling. The panels have no give, they are packed way too much, so no horse I have used it on was comfortable, and it could be felt through the ride. I couldn't ride in it very long at all.
Dislikes: It's stiff. It's relatively comfortable for me, but not my horse. The leather is pretty cheap, so it scratches very easily.
Quality: The construction is good, but you can't do any repairs yourself. It's made with quality, but the leather quality is cheap.
Summary: It's a great saddle for a beginner or low level rider. I personally don't think I would show in it unless a dressage saddle was absolutely mandatory.
Usefulness Rating: 2.7 out of 5.
