Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: Purchased at Dover Saddlery in Dallas for approx. $1200
Likes: I went to Dover looking to spend $2000+ on a Pessoa XL jumping saddle. I sat in several models, such as the Collegiate Diploma and the Pessoas. THEN they brought me this saddle! This saddle is out of the Pessoa's league, 100 times better. Super good quality, huge secure knee and thigh blocks, great fit for my horses.
Dislikes: Nothing, it exceeded every expectation I had. (although you do have to special order it from Dover and it can take a little bit to get it in, the one I tried was a return due to the fact it was ordered in black and came in in brown)
Quality: Super soft leather, very attractive saddle, I get comments from people all the time wanting to know what it is.
Summary: Wake up people! You do not have to spend a fortune on a Pessoa or some other high- end high-name saddle to get something great! I hope Saint Lourdes becomes more easily available here in the US.
