Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: ANKY
Model: Euro
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: Took this saddle on trial and paid $1177 for it. Tried many saddles and none fit my horse right. This saddle looked promising and thought I'd give it a try. They usually go for over $2300 new.

Likes: This saddle is VERY comfortable! Fits my horse perfectly (he's a baroque type). Very elegant looking and puts me in the right position. The price was good.

Dislikes: Nothing.

Quality: High quality, tight stitching. Gorgeous pebbled buffalo leather. This is a wide tree. NO XCH gullet system. Is an older model. Nice calf leather on seat. Large thigh blocks that support, but do not restrict. Nice wide channel to clear horse's spine. Wool flocked. Nice quality leather smell. Fulcrum billets that provide stability. Fits broad horses that are baroque with some withers. Slightly cutback pommel. Has cool ANKY nails on sides. Medium deep seat.

Summary: Highly recommend this saddle for baroque horses. I have a baroque Oldenburg and it fits him beautifully. Very balanced, nicely made saddle. Have been searching for years for the right saddle to fit him and can't believe I didn't ever try an ANKY before! I tried it on my second horse, a mutton withered, broad backed Arabian to see if it would fit him also, but sadly it does not. It was too narrow and the sides hit him in the shoulders. He's just built a lot differently than my Oldenburg. The Arabian's shoulders are too broad and "in your face" that they collide with the saddle flaps/panels.
