Model: Lancelot Event
Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle for my new horse that I planned on eventing. I was talked into it from the tack store employees in Vermont, and they said it was the best as far as putting the rider in a great position for cross-country.
Likes: It is made of a buffalo textured leather, which provides great traction. It also has knee blocks as well as thigh blocks, so your leg sticks in position while jumping up/down banks, varied terrain, etc. The seat is deep which also provides extra security. The knee flap is also very forward, so my stirrups could be adjusted for cross-country and steeplechase without my knees coming over the flaps.
Dislikes: The seat is a little hard, I like those newer padded seats better. Also, it does not put the rider in a good dressage position, as it is designed to do (for all 3 phases of an event). I would recommend it for jumping only.
Quality: Very good. Leather and stitching are durable, it has held up well in all weather.
Summary: It is a great eventing saddle for the jumping phases
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
