Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I found this saddle used and paid $350 for it. I needed a saddle for my hard-to-fit Arabian gelding and was on a tight budget.
Likes: The price! The saddle! The Fit! It's a very nice saddle and my horse loves it! We have been through saddle fitting heck and back and this saddle was a wide tree and it works swell on him! It's a 16.5 inch seat and it sits very well on his SHORT back and allows him freer movement.
Dislikes: There is nothing I don't like.
Quality: Tight stitching. Beautiful German leather. Large, but unrestictive knee rolls that help put you in a classical dressage position. The flaps are short, which is good and allows you to have better leg contact with your horse. The channel between the panels allows spine clearance. The cutback pommel allows wither clearance (even on a flat withered boy!) and there is a "V" billet design to anchor the saddle onto the horse and prevent slipping.
Summary: I highly recommend this saddle to anyone. It is comfortable. The horse LOVES it! He doesn't flinch and act up when I'm tacking him up anymore and goes nicely when we're schooling dressage.
