Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I got it as a Christmas present. I think the saddle cost about $800.
Likes: I have had this saddle for about 5 years now, and it has held up very well to me riding multiple horses in it 6 days a week. The leather is of very good quality considering the price. I also really liked, at the time, that the seat was a little flatter and the flaps a little more forward than most dressage saddles which eased my transition into dressage from show jumping.
Dislikes: Now that I have become more competitive in higher levels, this saddle really not longer suits my needs, the flaps and stirrup bars are set too forward and the center of the saddle is slightly too far back. This encourages the rider to end up in a chair seat.
Quality: The construction and quality of the saddle were very good for the price. I bought a wide tree, which fit my half-arab very well, and now fits almost all of my horses from ponies to warmbloods exceptionally.
Summary: Overall, this saddle is of good quality and holds up well to strenuous use. However, it is fit to use as a more versatile saddle than as an only saddle for a serious dressage competitor.
Usefulness Rating: 2.81818 out of 5.
