Purchase: I ordered this saddle from dover on close out for $900. I ordered it because I was looking for a new "step up" from my previous saddle that was just a tick to small.

Likes: I love how it puts me in the perfect position no matter what I am doing while I am riding. It is a nice deep chocolate color, that oils up really nice. The leather is soft and breaks in quickly. It fits most warmbloods and bigger backed horses. The moveable blocks are really nice when riding a variety of different horses.

Dislikes: My only complaint is that on the thoroughbred type horses it tends to bridge a little bit. It was easily fixed with padding though.

Quality: Excellent quality for the price. It has a solid construction, it would take a lot to get the stitching to wear out. The leather is sticky and supple. I just wish it had wool flocking rather than foam.

Summary: Bottom line, this saddle fits my needs and I would choose this saddle again over a Toulouse every time. It is made to compare to the butets and it definitely is in the same class of comparison. Love this saddle and I would definitely buy it again.
