Ulla Salzeberger Rusty
Dressage Saddles



Manufacturer: Kieffer
Model: Ulla Salzeberger Rusty
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I had been searching for a dressage saddle that would be suitable for training and competition as well as trail riding in the bush behind my property, who wants to change saddles after working your horse before heading out for a little "let down time"? After a series of misses, I saw the Rusty on ebay and made a bid on the opening bid, $1,790. In Australia this saddle retails at $4,500. I was the only bidder and the Rusty was mine!

Likes: Everything. The saddle was two years old when I bought it but didn't appear to have a lot of work, and this was supported by the saddler, who came to fit it to my mare. It is a classy saddle that catches the eye and then lives up to first impressions.The leather is beautiful, not slippery or over grippy. The excellent seat is awesome and the seat places you in an amazing position. The knee blocs are supportive without being restrictive. My aids became far my effective and the mare's movement went from 6 and 7s to 7s and 8s. The flocking is soft, the channel wide enough and the weight is evenly distributed over the mare's back. We both love it!

Dislikes: Nothing. Very happy with my purchase

Quality: The construction and quality is what you would expect from Kieffer. Beautiful leather, elegantly crafted. Even the points are stitched, with Y girthing placed to stabilise the saddle. The seat and blocs enhance the riding experience, without dictating your movement or pinning you into position. The adjustable gullet is a bonus, and although you have to get a saddler to do the adjustment, you know that the saddle fits perfectly.

Summary: My mare and I both love this saddle and I wish I had found it years ago!
