Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Schleese
Model: Connexion
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: Schleese came to my barn for a saddle fitting. I bought a new Connexion dressage saddle for ~$4500.

Likes: Absolutely everything. I had no intention of buying a new dressage saddle (I meant to see which saddle fit him best then try and buy a used one) but as soon as I sat in this saddle I really liked it. It was also immediately obvious that my horse like it to as he went from being a little bit stiff and shuffling to big extravagant floaty paces within a few strides! The saddle is well made, the leather feels great & it has large external knee blocks which are really good at helping me keep the correct position & gives me a bit of extra security (my horse is a big warmblood with a huge stride who can suddenly explode skywards!). I also like that it's a monoflap as I feel really close to my horse (& there's less to clean which is a bonus for me).

Dislikes: The only thing I don't like is that the saddle is rather heavy but my horse doesn't seem to object.

Quality: Very well made, it is very comfortable & it looks great.

Summary: I bought this saddle about 1 month ago & I can honestly say that this is the best purchase I have ever made for me & my horse. The difference in the way my horse moves is amazing. In my old saddle I felt like I was always fighting to get/stay in the correct position but in this saddle i sit correctly and can concentrate on actually riding. I want to add that I also tried a different Schleese model but neither my horse nor I liked it. I was surprised how different they felt so it's a case of trying different ones out to see what suits best.
