Dressage Saddles



Manufacturer: Luc Childeric
Model: DAC Dressage saddle
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: This saddle was an impulse buy at the WEG in 2002 in Jerez. I wanted a new saddle and after browsing several stores etc i located this one in the trade section of the WEG Price > USD 2000

Likes: The seat is deep without being restrictive. The saddle is a monoflap design which allows fabulous feel while riding. It features large thigh blocks mounted on the outside of the flap which make it impossible to ride in anything but the correct position. The fit on different horses is amazing i own an extremely large (186 cm or 18.2) dressage horse who is for obvious reasons difficult to fit. However as everyone at the training barn im currently at in germany loves the saddle so much it gets used regularly on all sorts of size and shape horses. Yep!!!! you heard it right i have managed to convert 2 professional European riders to a French saddle, prior to this they were staunch German saddle only riders. Both have now bought their own Childeric and ride many horses a day in them and we never have difficulty with fit, no risers, gel pads etc are ever needed.

Dislikes: The only downside to this saddle is everyone loves it so much i have to track it down when i need to ride myself.

Quality: Quality is beyond great, a minimum of 7 horses a day for the last 5 years and its as good as new even the billet straps are not worn. The Specially designed tree is the basis of the great fit and it certainly hasn't disappointed in any way. Buffalo leather is extremely hard wearing and has remained grippy even after all this time.

Summary: Try one its the best saddle i have ever ridden in and i have tried my fair share of name brand saddles over the years. I will never go back!
