Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: Purchased from a local tack shop here in California for around $1900.00. I've had it for two years now.
Likes: I really like the interchangeable gullets and the Cair fit system. I have had two rt. knee replacement and had a problem finding knee comfort. The leathers are placed in just the right place to eliminate any knee pressure. My horse lost weight last year and I was able to re-fit the gullet to continue using it. Re-fitting and replacing the gullet is very easy and quick. My large Arab seems to like the fit also. I find it very comfortable. I also like that I can use it on other horses with just a quick change.
Dislikes: The down side would be the Cair. No way to repair or replace it. Knee rolls are pretty demanding. I only use the small ones or remove them completely.
Quality: Construction overall is quite sturdy. Leather care has been very easy. I would like all the leather straps a bit softer.(with time this will happen)
Summary: This has been a great saddle for me. My horse is more advanced than I am, but I always feel secure and like I'm floating on a cloud. I've never once lost my balance in this saddle. And we've had some very exciting rides.
Usefulness Rating: 2 out of 5.
