Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Albion
Model: Legend
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I had been searching for this saddle for eternity, when just last month I found it! Cruising a saddlery in country NSW (Australia). I rode in one years ago and found it so comfortable that I have looked for one of my own ever since. I paid just under $500AU which is just ridiculous! I couldn't really afford even that much (cheap as it is), but I just couldn't leave it there.

Likes: It has a classic look, supreme comfort, beautifully soft leather, a deep soft seat, well padded knee rolls, brand new points and a bargain price tag! What else can I say? Ive been searching for about 15 years for one, and I am overjoyed to have it in my tack room. I have tried alot of other great saddles but the Legend feels like it was made for me. It is a 17" which I would usually avoid as I am tiny, but in this saddle, it works!

Dislikes: That I didn't find it sooner and I couldn't afford it when it was brand new (still jealous of previous owners), Oh and that it doesn't have an interchangeable gullet, so occasionally I am forced to ride in another saddle, (Oh the horror!)when I need to work other

Quality: 17", Very soft and well cared for, brown leather. In good condition for a used saddle, it does have some wear marks and scratches but once you are sitting in it you would never know. New points and a lovely deep seat that hugs you just right yet does not restrict movement . A well made, quality saddle with many years of life to look forward to.

Summary: Excellent Value for money, very comfy, could sit in it all day, every day, and still in good enough condition to show in. Seats you in a lovely position and fits 3 of my horses perfectly. (A TB, a TB type Paint, and an Arab, the rest being QHs are another story altogether!)I would recommend this saddle to anyone, it has made my month.
