Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: Bought this saddle new from Aitkens saddlery for my narrow fairly high withered TB. Paid about $1300 with mounts. Had it fitted to my horse - saddle fitter added some padding to it so it sat right on him.
Likes: I love this saddle. It just feels right. The synthetic material is good quality and I find the suede is grippy and makes me feel more secure when riding my horse's very bouncy trot. The twist is medium width, wider than some of the kieffers I have ridden in, but not too wide to be comfortable for me. No dry pressure points when I take this saddle off after he has sweated during a ride. My boy likes this saddle. Also, the Thorowgood anatomically shaped dressage girth with elastic both ends is the best girth I have ever used. I don't buy any other brand now.
Dislikes: There is really nothing I don't like about this saddle. Except maybe that I can't find a numnah that is wide enough to accomodate the seat area of this saddle - it has a wide channel.
Quality: The quality of this saddle is very good for the price. I have ridden in mine around five times a week for about seven years. It is still in good condition, nothing wrong with it, only thing I could say is that the suede doesn't appear as plush as it used to, but I have never given the saddle a really good wash so maybe that would help plump it up again!
Summary: I have never seen one of these for sale second hand and I think that is probably because people keep them because they like them.
Usefulness Rating: 3.4 out of 5.
