Manufacturer: Lauriche
Model: Custom Dressage Saddle
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle from a trainer in the area (MN) for $2500 used. It was about 9 years old and had been ridden in quite a bit, but considering these saddles are about $6000 new with a 10-12 month waiting list, I considered it a fair price.

Likes: Easily the most comfortable saddle I have EVER ridden in, far preferable to more popular brands like Albion. The saddle gave me a lot of freedom to move and find my own position, in other dressage saddles I feel locked or forced in place, but not at all with this saddle. My horse was also SO much freer and happier with the saddle compared to the many others we tried. He loved the tree and I loved the seat. I have yet to find a saddle that is as comfortable OR as beautiful. The saddle was various shades of brown and looked very unique and elegant.

Dislikes: The only complaint for me was that my horse's back changed as our training progressed and the saddle no longer fit. Because the tree is not adjustable and the flocking is foam, it wasn't possible to re-fit it. Also, trying to find any information on Lauriche was very difficult, and I had to track down the ONLY American saddle fitter of this company in order to find out options for refitting. He was very helpful but I felt sorry for bothering him when I wasn't buying a new saddle. I wish there was a website that was easy to find so that I could have gotten info more quickly.

Quality: Highest quality in every possible aspect, after 9 years of heavy use it didn't look new but was hardly worse for the wear. It just got better with age. Beautiful leather.

Summary: Finest saddle on the market in my opinion, if you can find one that fits your horse and can afford it, I would recommend it above all others.
