Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I purchased lightly used off ebay for $2300. I tried my trainer's on my horse and fell in LOVE with it's comfort, positioning and smell (smells like awesome leather and leaves my breeches smelling like it too! :p). They go for only a couple hundred more but I wanted it right away to use and couldn't pass up the opportunity. Other saddles put me in awkward positions and made me think it was "me" being a bad rider!

Likes: The narrow twist and the single flap put me in a great position. I can communicate with my horse more effectively. The seat is cushy and comfy like a sofa! The leather is delicious! The wool flocking is SOFT as a baby's bottom and my horse goes well in it. She's a very picky mare and will throw a fit if a saddle sucks!

Dislikes: There is nothing I don't like. However, I do notice the billets seem to be flimsier leather compared to the saddle's.

Quality: Excellent quality thus far. Tight stitching, soft wool flocking, nice design (with the single flap) and again, narrow twist. No thighs hurting, happy camper! Custom Saddlery is made in the USA to my knowledge. I've had many European made saddles and this one ranks up there with them!

Summary: Highly recommend this saddle to someone who is looking for a non-ouchy saddle. Sitting trot is easier and so is canter. Just make sure that if you buy it second hand that the tree hasn't been adjusted too many times because they can only be adjusted twice (what I heard). It can mess with the integrity of the tree and you don't want that. Also, make sure the tree size it's stamped is actually what you're buying. I noticed a lot of adjusted tree saddles on the market (for example: stamped wide but made medium wide). Make sure to ask the seller and know what you're getting.
