Manufacturer: Duett Saddlery
Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I have a very wide Cheval Canadian, and needed something wider than your average "wide" saddle. And although I school dressage, I also love to trail ride which requires longer periods of time in the saddle. The Tango is a combination of both dressage and endurance saddles. I found this saddle at Trumbull Mountain Tack Shop in VT. It was a demo, and therefore available at a 10% discount. I paid $1080.
Likes: I love that the 38cm width of this saddle is comfortable for my horse. The wide channel provides plenty of room for her spine (her back resembles a couch) and the wide panels keep her comfortable when I'm in the saddle for long periods of time.
I like that I can sit in a dressage position with my legs correctly beneath me, but I'm not "trapped" in a deep seat. I am also comfortable enough to ride in it for hours. The knee blocks are removable (I ride without them) and have a cover for the velcro so that stuff doesn't get stuck to it.
Dislikes: I've had this saddle for a year and a half now, and I have yet to find something I don't like about it. I'm thrilled with my purchase!
Quality: The leather quality and the stitching are both very good. I'll be the first to admit that I don't look at the $4,000+ saddles because I know that I cannot afford them. However, I'm quite happy with what I have. I clean and condition my saddle regularly and I'm hoping to have it for many, many years.
Summary: I'm very happy with my purchase. If you ride in a dressage position, but don't want the very deep seat of a dressage saddle, you should consider the Tango. It is very comfortable for long rides, but also allows correct position for dressage.
