Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: Many years ago I had to replace my leather english saddle due to age. I looked for a long time, and because I was wanting to start showing dressage, started looking at dressage saddles, but did not want to make a $1000+ investment in a saddle.
Likes: The ease of care. Durability.
Dislikes: Nothing I dislike - it is a trooper of a saddle
Quality: Well constructed, once you get the hang of changing the gullet out it is a breeze (first time or two you may have issues). Care is cleaning with a water hose or a little bit of mild dish soap.
Summary: I have owned this saddle now for 10+ years. In that time I have had to replace the billets (am on 3rd set now)and nothing else. I ride in this saddle daily, it has been from the beach to the show ring and looks as good now as the day I purchased it. When my horse was a youngster and his shape was changing, the changeable gullet was a life saver. Even now, if I need to move the saddle to a smaller horse, I can in less than 5 minutes. Use to own a A/P 500 as well and sold it only due to I was not using it. It too held up and looked good when I sold it.
Usefulness Rating: 2.8 out of 5.
