Aachen Dressage Saddle
Model: Aachen Dressage Saddle
Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle used for $700. It was in perfect shape tho the extra block was missing, I do not use that anyway. I was looking for a saddle to fit my new horse.My horse is quite wide being Andalusian/warmblood and this wide saddle had sufficient channel and appeared as if made for her. The gusseted panel also a plus
Likes: The leather is soft and pliable yet was in perfect condition tho used and this was a great sign. The panels were pliable as well with the stuffing, which can be augmented,nice and even. My horse went immediately like she was showing off a new mink coat. My seat was also dually impressed with the comfort. The knee pad has just the right amount of support without making you feel stuck in position and the feel if security is better than any dressage saddle I have tried.
Dislikes: Thus far, I have not found a negative.
Quality: Considering the price, the construction is superb. Stitching is even and finished well, leather pliable yet shines nicely. Stirrup bars are curved, a style I like. Appearance very finished and stylish. The leathers are attached to webbing which has a y construction to keep the saddle settled which it does nicely. It also leaves much less bulk under your leg. panels, unlike the jumper saddles, are wool flocked leaving possibility of better fit for hard to fit horse.
Summary: This saddle is a best buy for price compared to features. I would buy another if my horse changes size, or I change horses.
