Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I took this saddle on trial from a used tack website and the price was $1,100 for it. I was getting tired of the LARGE thigh blocks in my previous saddles because of my horse's large warmblood movement. I kept getting bruises and pain from them and finally had enough.

Likes: This saddle is very nice. Beautifully made and nice to ride in. Most importantly it fit my unusually shaped horse (he has a high wither, yet has a broad back. The medium tree fit him very well. The seat cushions my bum very nicely, where other saddles made it sore :( My horse moved A LOT better and relaxed...I could actually FEEL him underneath me. In my other large knee block, bulky saddles I felt disconnected and the rides were unenjoyable.

Dislikes: The place I got it from misinformed me regarding their trial process and were very argumentative on the phone. The saddle was already on it's way, so I decided to try it anyways. The saddle was advertised in "very good condition" but when I opened the box and looked at it, there were MANY blemishes/scratches, and a slit near the tree where you could see the flocking was exposed somewhat. I would say it is in fair-good condition from where I got it.

Quality: This saddle has a cutback pommel design for high withered horses for freedom of movement. The saddle sits perfectly behind the shoulders so that it doesn't interfere with the horse. It is of excellent German quality, soft calf leather, nice unintruding concealed knee rolls, NO thighblocks and puts you in the correct position so that you can focus more on your technique during your rides. Has a very generous wide channel between the panels for excellent spine clearance. The medium tree seems to run a little larger than other saddles and they have genuine wool flocked panels. It also features a V-billet girthing system to prevent slipping and "anchor" the saddle to your horse for a more stable position.

Summary: I would highly recommend this saddle. It is very comfortable and your horse WILL love it! I've never felt my horse so relaxed and enthusiastic about our rides. Great investment!
