Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I purchased this saddle at a local tack shop while looking for a saddle with an adjustable tree. I paid a mere $700 *new* during an incredible clearance sale.
Likes: The seat and twist of this saddle are very comfortable. Also, it has a smallish knee roll and a *slightly* forward, shorter flap (for a dressage saddle), so the irons can be adjusted a little short when needed. The tree can be adjusted by a saddler when my horse changes. All of these features make this saddle great for my young horse.
Dislikes: The leather is proving a little tough to break-in, but I imagine it will wear like iron! Also, this particular unit has short billets, fine for me, but not particularly popular.
Quality: This saddle is really beautiful. It has a cut-back pommel and soft leather over the knee roll. The stitching and construction are very sturdy. The seat is deep enough for security and sitting trot, but I have some measure of freedom, also.
Summary: This saddle was a great buy for my young horse and I. I see myself comfortably using this saddle 15 years from now.
