Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: Purchased online overseas for $650 USD. I have the Jeffries Perflexion All Purpose and LOVE it. Wanted to find a Jeffries dressage saddle because dressage is my main thing. Craved the comfort of a Jeffries in a dressage style!
Likes: This saddle didn't disappoint or surprise me. It was exactly what I expected and is ALL THAT and more. Most importantly it fits my horse (Jeffries brand suits her build perfectly). She's broad, hoopy and flat backed. The leather is scrumptious and soft. The seat is padded and comfy. The wool flocking is soft and luxurious. My mare is PICKY and goes well in both our Jeffries saddles.
Dislikes: The seller advertised it as a 17.5 but it measures 17 inch. The seat rides generous, so it's not that big a deal. The saddle itself doesn't have any stirrup leather keeper loops on the flap. Very different from the other Jeffries saddle I have. Is a bit inconvenient while lunging (have to use an iron holder strap). Webber style or monoflap stirrup leathers are highly recommended if no leather keeper loops.
Quality: The quality is OUTSTANDING and AWESOME! It has buttery soft pebbled leather, soft high quality wool flocking. The tree points are short and the tree is shaped like a hoop (which is better my certified Master Saddler said for all type of horses). My mare goes nicely in it and she KNOWS how to let me know if she hates a saddle! It's made in England and has all the bells and whistles.
Summary: Highly recommend these saddles made by Jeffries. Don't know why they're so uncommon here in the US? They are most definitely "up there" in quality with all the known high quality saddles advertised. I've had many of those. The Jeffries compares closely in quality to County in my honest opinion. Just more affordable ;)
