Jaine Savoie
Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Schleese
Model: Jaine Savoie
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I acquired this saddle used from a local tack shop for approximately $1,200 tax included.

Likes: I love the balance of the saddle. I feel so naturally aligned from shoulder-hip-heel. It definitely supports the position where if you were to sweep the horse out from underneath your seat, you would land on your feet! The thigh blocks are well positioned and help keep my knee down and relaxed when working on bigger medium & extended gaits. I like how it aids my position without feeling restricted or stuck. This saddle fits my horse beautifully. I had been struggling to find a saddle that did not move around on my horse's back. He is a horse that moves a great deal through his back, causing many saddles to bounce in back or pushing them to slide. Talk about adding extra challenge to sitting the trot! Even my Roosli Pilatus that was checked by a good saddle fitter slid and moved a bit against his back. This saddle sits down well, and the v-billet system keeps it there. This saddle actually moves with his back. This helps me move with him too!

Dislikes: Nothing really. It is a great saddle. The saddle is used, so the seat padding is broken in and leans more toward the firm side. I prefer this firmer seat- but if you want a super cushy spongey feel, this may not be your saddle, or you may need to have the seat restuffed on a used model.

Quality: This saddle is very well made, with high quality leather that is soft, yet durable. The only real signs of wear on my saddle are stretched holes on the billet straps. Not a big deal to me at all.

Summary: It is a great saddle! Well made, well designed and well balanced. I believe this model is no longer in production, but used ones can be found. They are worth looking for!
