Purchase: Purchased used from private seller $950
Likes: I saw this saddle on a horsey website and decided to do some research. I liked what I was reading and decided to drive an hour (!) out of town to have a look. The saddle was in excellent condition but needed a good cleaning. It was a gamble but I took my KN Olympic home without trying it. Put in on my sport horse mare and it fit nicely. Then I rode around the arena for a few minutes and said to my trainer "this is the nicest dressage saddle I've ever ridden in!". I've ridden in $5000 custom saddles that were not nearly as nice as this used KN. I felt comfortable and really secure in the saddle without being locked in by an overly deep seat or large knee blocks. The leather is top quality. I'm thrilled with my "find" and would consider buying a new KN if this wears out before I do!
Dislikes: They seem to be hard to find in Canada, otherwise nothing!
Quality: Very classic, clean design, superior quality leather and construction, not bulky at all.
Summary: I don't know why more people don't know about these saddles. I asked around and no one had heard of KN. They are an unbelievable value at around $2000 new. Need more tack stores to carry this line in Canada.
