Likes: Saddle is completely custom built for my body and my horses back. As such my own seat balance during riding has increased mega-fold. Comfortable seat, yet the design seems to give a freedom to my leg coming out of my hip joint, which both supports the proper position and yet allows me to move. All I can say is 1000 hugs!
Dislikes: Bit more money, so sticker shock at first ..but then when I look at the fact that it was custom built, based on a common sense design and customized for me..no real dislikes.
Quality: Fiberglass tree with a filling that I don't remember the name of - but could be shaved to fit my own unique seat. I was given a choice of two different leather types and the advantages and disadvantages of both.
Summary: A excellently built saddle, with European quality, yet designed and built in the United States. The designer really understands the needs of the dressage rider and horse and has made a saddle that aids me, instead of fighting me. My riding has improved in my ability to retain a balanced seat.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
