Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle off of ebay new for $735, including shipping.
Likes: It is a nice looking saddle, soft leather, seems to be well-made and pretty durable.
Dislikes: The flex tree was supposed to change to fit my horse, but even after I rode in it it still pinched his shoulders badly. It fits his back quite nicely and there is plenty of room for his spine, but I don't know if I will ride in it to see if it will stretch or just try to get rid of it. The seat is also not incredibly comfortable (hard), and it doesn't lock you into a position at all. This could be good or bad depending on your preferences.
Quality: It seems to be constructed nicely, all of the stitching is good. I rode in it once for about an hour and there was absolutely no rubbing visible anywhere.
Summary: This is a nice saddle, but don't get it if you have a big warmblood like mine or a horse with big shoulders.
