Manufacturer: Heather Moffet
Model: Vogue Treeless
Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I was transitioning into second level over the summer and found that I simply could NOT sit the trot in my Wintec 500. Plus, it appeared to have a twisted tree. After MUCH research, I decided I wanted to try a treeless saddle, and the HM Vogue appeared to have the best reviews, the best research backing it up, etc. I paid $2,400 new.
Likes: The leather is fabulous and looks to be hard-wearing, especially the billets. My mare increased in size from a medium to a medium wide in 4 months, and I firmly believe it's because the saddle is no longer restricting her back. Plus, all of her gaits have improved tremendously, especially the extended trot. It is extremely comfortable for me too- no more crotch pain!! It's like sitting on a couch, but it puts your leg into the correct classical position.
Dislikes: I had a very difficult time getting the saddle level. It still is not ideal, but I can ride in it. The only real problem I have with the saddle is that I CANNOT sit the extended trot. The foam in the saddle seems to act like a catapult springing my rear end out of the saddle. If all I had to do was sit her normal gaits, I would be perfectly content with this saddle.
Quality: Very high quality. Plus, the US distributors are awesome and will do their very best to get the saddle set up perfect.
Summary: Beautiful construction, the most comfortable saddle ever, and my horse loves it. I just with it had a deeper seat and thigh block so I could sit that extended trot!
