Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I was introduced to Voltaire by my trainer as he is sponsored by them. When we found out my horse was unfit-table in ready-made saddles we had the PA Voltaire rep come out and fit my horse. After 5 months of searching, I had met with almost every saddle rep around and this guy was the best and most knowledgeable. We went with a custom-fitted Lexington... which costs $4700.
Likes: The saddle itself is designed to put the rider in the perfect position... I can use it for dressage and cross country with no problems because when I change my stirrup length, the saddle keeps me in the center of balance. The leather is soft, comes broken in, and is grippy. The Lexington is the monoflap model and the blocks are positioned to actually fit the contours of the rider's legs... unlike some. Also, with different thickness added front and back, they customized one for a perfect fit on my horse... and it was very easy to clear my horse's "Mt Everest of withers."
Dislikes: Well the price obviously... lol. The only main thing is that for the price I think leathers should come with the saddle.
Quality: Voltaire is a relatively new brand, created by two former heads of Devoucoux. The leather is French leather, put together in South America... nothing wrong with that, the craftsmanship is still impeccable.
Summary: I can't wait for my saddle and am counting the days, well months and years, until I can get the Adelaide dressage saddle!!
