Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle online from I bought it for $1100, it was on sale for $700 off. I bought it because I had been looking for this particular saddle for a long time, and found one on sale!

Likes: I love the gullet system, and how easy it was to break in. The fact that the leather is supple and of good quality lets me know that I will be able to use it and ride in it for a long time :) Plus it fits my rather large rear-end very well :) When it comes to my riding, the flaps allow me to change from a dressage position with a longer stirrup, and I can also shorten the leathers and use it for jumping. It is an amazing all-around saddle.

Dislikes: Nothing!

Quality: Amazing. The stitching and quality is impeccable. I absolutely love my saddle.

Summary: This saddle is definitely worth the price I paid and I will totally buy one again! :)
