Manufacturer: Frank Banes
Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I purchased this saddle new from a local consignment store. It is the Omni high head. I paid $2500.00 for it.
Likes: This is the best saddle I have ever sat in! The quality is great, the leather continues to look new. I have a secure feeling in this saddle. I am a para rider, so security is a top priority as well as comfort. I have ridden for hours at a time on trail rides, and it is still comfortable. The other women at the barn use my saddle from time to time, as always refer to it as "Annie's Lazy-Boy" I am 5'1 and other riders who are 5'7 also find it is a great fit.
Dislikes: Where the stirrup leather attaches to the saddle on the right side stuck out a bit for a few months. It didn't dig into me, but I knew it was there. I just kept putting leather conditioner under it, and the leather softened, and it then sat flush as with the other side.
Quality: Exceptional quality, totally worth the price.
Summary: If you can get your hands on one...buy it!
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
