Manufacturer: Paris Tack
Model: Dressage Saddle
Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I purchased this saddle from SLT for 400. I wanted to get a starter dressage saddle since my other two saddles were all-purpose.
Likes: the price was appealing of course. The leather was soft. The billets fit my girth just fine. It felt more like a synthetic in terms of weight.
Dislikes: The leather was much thinner than other leather on better models. The stitching was very simple and plain. I did look for some fitting issues such as bridging and believe that one side did bridge quite a bit on my QH but when i set the saddle down on my less-withered small horse, it didn't seem to bridge as much. I'm far from an expert saddle fitter but it did seem to bridge on one side.
Quality: For 400, it seemed fine as a starter saddle but i returned it since i decided not to ride dressage and when/if i do start to take lessons in dressage again, i think i'll get a used Courbette or another major brand instead of a new Paris Tack. The leather just is not quite the same as the name-brands.
Summary: As a starter dressage, i wouldn't really recommend it though i don't think it's a bad saddle - just "weaker"(in overall quality) than the name-brands. But what would you expect????
