Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Hermes
Model: Corlandus
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I actually own more than one Hermes Corlandus saddle as I have one in both the wide (baroque) and standard (actually wide) trees. I purchased one from a professional rider who won it but could not use it as she was being sponsored by a different saddle maker and the other from Dover Saddlery as a "demo" model. In both cases, the price was discounted almost half.

Likes: It is simply the most comfortable and helpful dressage saddle I have ever used. I have ridden in Stubben, Courbette, Passier, Jaguar, Crosby, Wintec, Borne, Amerigo, Kieffer, Rembrandt, Cobra, Otto Schumacher over the years and now will not use any other saddle. Period. The Corlandus allows me to "fall" in the correct position and my horses love it, moving freely and more forward. The foam panels enable the saddles to fit many horses and fit them well and without restriction.

Dislikes: The price. ;-) However, I was fortunate to find new/almost new condition at a fair discount.

Quality: Superb quality and construction. Outstanding attention to detail. They still look almost new with ongoing use and proper care (without using Hermes products). Please note that an unfavorable "review" is posted at regarding durability of the Hermes Corlandus. However, upon closer reading, no discussion was provided regarding actual care given to the saddle.

Summary: I would not hesitate to purchase again and will not ride in anything else. (I am NOT affiliated with Hermes in any way--simply happy to have been able to find and purchase my dream saddles! :-)
