Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I bought this on E-Bay for 800.00. I thought it would be my "backup" saddle. Wrong! I love it so much I can't stop riding in it.
Likes: Deep, deep seat! I was having trouble sitting back and getting my legs under me. I was riding in a Barnsby (fabulous saddle!) that I thought I'd never give up because it was so comfortable...but this changed my mind. Totally corrected my posture and leg position. Also has the advantage of being really cushy! You don't realize how long you've been riding (until your horse lets you know it's been long enough, thank you.)
Dislikes: Geez. Not much not to like. The first few days I developed a blister on my knee because I wasn't used to the knee roll and wasn't sitting properly. Also it took me a couple of times to realize how far up I'd have to lift my thigh to get off (high cantle for deep seat) but really...there's nothing not to like about this saddle.
Quality: I assume that my model is older (I have no way of knowing) but there is no sign of wear! The leathers are good, the stitching is good, the seat is good. Must be good construction!
Summary: I would buy this saddle again and consider it a bargain at twice the price. Comfortable, well made and fits my hard to fit Arabian (I bought an X-Wide for him) like a glove. Also fits me! Fits horse; fits rider. What's not to love?
