Likes: This saddle is truly the best dressage saddle I have ever ridden in. The design helps you ride in the correct position and is very comfortable. The knee blocks are amazing and mould to your legs I ride up to advanced Medium level and riding through all the lateral movements keeps you secure and balanced even on the biggest moving horses like my boy! Medium/extended trot used to be a nightmare! The saddle is easy to fit and is fitted with the easy change gullet system so if your horse changes shape there is no need to buy a new saddle. I also love the Cair system which fits my horse beautifully and moulds to his shape. it is very comfortable for the rider and gives you a close contact "feel". The leather is soft and has suede on the inside of the knee rolls for extra grip and suede detail on the back of the cantle which is smart. Don't be worried by the size of the knee blocks they do mould to your leg! I would recommend this saddle to anyone from happy hackers to advanced dressage riders it is a wonderful saddle.
Quality: The construction and design are brilliant, I love the easy change system, but i do warn you , you will need a strong man to undo the screws, i was on for ages struggling till I found a strong man to help me! Leather is good quality and once oiled comes up lovely and soft.
Summary: brilliant, I've been waiting for a saddle like this for years!
