Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I purchased this saddle barely used (ridden in like 5 times) for $600 off of e-bay 8 months ago. The woman who ordered it decided the seat was too large for her, and ordered a different one. It took a while to get used to the feel of the saddle, but now I like it very much now.
Likes: The thigh blocks really do allow your leg to be in a better position. And the saddle seems to be durable.
Dislikes: At first, I wasn't particularly fond of the twist in the seat. It was very different from my other saddle (a used crosby), it was a completely different feel from my previous saddle. But after a month or so of riding in it I began to feel really comfortable. Now I feel so secure in it. (and less corrections on my posture) My only structural complaint would be the billets could be a little better quality. They aren't bad, but I expected better. But I wouldn't. It buy the saddle because of this. It is still a really good saddle.
Quality: This saddle so far seems to be wearing great, and was very easy to break in.
Summary: Good Saddle for the price. My fave is a Trilogy Amerigo, but this saddle was in my price range. I am very happy with my purchase.
