Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I got this from a local shop. Wasted over $1200 on it too.
Likes: I chose this saddle because it was black and had dressage and jumping blocks. The knee blocks are interchangeable to convert if from jumping to dressage.
Dislikes: The dressage blocks were suede and almost immediately started to look bad, it was scruffy like the suede was rubbing away. My knees always felt tlike they were poking in front of the blocks as opposed to staying behind them. The saddle didn't have any d-rings either so I could not use a breastplate.
Quality: The leather was okay I guess but like I said before, the suede was awful. The saddle was uncomfrtable to my horse as well. When I changed to a different model whe appeared to be happier.
Summary: I would not recommend this saddle to anyone, especially if you are on a budget. This saddle was not cheap by any means, but a waster of money for me. If you are going to buy this saddle, I would buy a used one to safe yourself a few dollars.
