Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Kieffer
Model: Amsterdam
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: Bought used saddle on eBay for 500 EUR - bargain as it was is perfect shape and very lightly used.

Likes: Extremely comfortable to ride in, the seat is medium deep and the knee rolls are just the right size, not too big and not too small. A good fit for a tall rider with long legs as the saddle flap allows for the leg to be bent at a sharper angle if needed, not just straight as for other models.

Dislikes: As the horse the saddle is being used on is croup high, saddle has tendency to slide forward towards the shoulders even though the fit has been confirmed by a saddle fitter. What could be a potential problem: the Exclusive saddle tree is not adjustable as the Kieffer trees usually are!

Quality: Very soft leather, possibly the softest saddle seat I have ever sat in. Good quality overall. Theoretically it has shorter panels for horses with short backs - have not had the chance to test this.

Summary: A very good saddle in its price range. Would highly recommend it!
