Model: 232392 and a Grand Gilbert for which I cannot find the number
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: Back in 1984 my parents bought me a Passier PS tree saddle (232392) for my first horse which was an Arab. I competed him to Elementary level and than bought in 1989 a Trakehner stallion who competed with my and that saddle to Advanced Medium level. In 2000 I bought a second hand Grand Gilbert initially for my Hessian gelding (aged over twenty years then), who very quickly was too broad for it. So I got a saddle out to fit the Grand Gilbert on the stallion and the old Passier on the gelding. I can happily say that I still use both saddles and both horses.

Likes: Generally what is fab about Passier saddle is that the allow enough shoulder and wither freedom for the horse, also they do fit a variety of horses, are virtually not to be destructed and are very comfortable with a superb seat which allows sufficient freedom for the rider. There quality is second to none and the service at Passier is outstanding. I had the older saddle in because it was sitting slightly squint on the horse. This was fixed within a week and for very reasonable costs. The 26 year old saddle is still perfect to use on every day basis and the Grand Gilbert does not look as if it is 10 years plus old.

Dislikes: The older saddle has slightly lost its colour and has an odd greenish shade. But I have probably back 30-40 horses in it and you still would not know.

Quality: All seams, stirrup bars etc are in perfect order after all those years. For the older saddle the girth straps were replaced 15 years ago or so. You will never have a horse with a sore back or any white hair if you use (a fitting) Passier saddle.

Summary: If you can get your hands on a for your horse fitting saddle, go for it, new or used I can only recommend them.
