Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: Purchased new through professional saddle fitter, $825.
Likes: Fit- this saddle fits my wide-backed Saddlebred horse very well and is doesn't bridge like every close contact saddle we tried. As a tall rider, it fits me really well, the flaps are long enough for my thigh and I love the knee roll design- contoured to my knee and it holds me leg right in place without being overly restricting. The seat feels like a close contact, not built up hill like most AP's. Very comfortable to ride in, suitable to use for jumping, flat work, or even dressage. Suitable for the show ring. Nice looking saddle, well balanced- stirrup bars placed perfectly.
Dislikes: The dye on the flaps has rubbed/faded some in the 4 month's I've had it, and the color, while beautiful, is a little hard to match.
Quality: excellent quality, durable, well made. After 4 months, except for some rubbing on the flaps, it looks almost brand new.
Summary: Great quality saddle for the price. Great fit, well balanced, comfortable and versatile.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
