Purchase: I purchased my first DK dressage saddle at Equine Affaire back in 2007. I had the ability to try out several high end custom saddles as my horses were in the Breed Pavilion all week. I rode in several saddles that were upwards of $5,000 and I was very disappointed-until on the last day I rode in the DK:)

Likes: I knew that I would have to purchase a custom made saddle because my horses' backs are soooo wide and they have huge shoulders AND are very short backed. After trying the other saddles-which did not help my position at all, nor did they stay centered on the middle of my horse's back-the DK was amazingly better!!! There was absolutely no question that my horses were moving out better, and more relaxed. I felt so balanced and beautifully aligned ear, shoulder, hip, and heel. So much easier to give a lighter aid and my horses responded so immediately.

Dislikes: There is nothing to say here. I am totally thrilled with every DK Saddle I have purchased. Even the Jump saddles put you in a beautiful balanced, correct position!

Quality: Absolutely gorgeous French and Italian calfskin, and I love that there is no up charge for different colored seat piping and trim welting, or contrast stitching. When properly cared for, even my first saddle looks nearly brand new.

Summary: I can't say enough good things about DK Saddlery. My horses are never back sore, they always are willing to move forward with ease and a big, reaching stride. Danny is easy to deal with and he comes 2x a year. I can always reach him by phone or email if I need something. In short, I think these saddles are well worth their price tag as they are top quality and perform beyond expectations for many years.
