Category: All Purpose Saddles
Likes: It is a very lightweight neat little saddle and its probably the most comfortable one I have ridden in. I have the brown suede model and the suede is still 'fluffy' 18 months on although I recommend the ride on cover. I use the saddle for everything but it is most appropriate for showing and dressage. My horse is an Arab and quite broad yet it doesn't slip. Technically its a working hunter saddle (but this website didn't give me this option)
Dislikes: Not really a criticism as it is designed for showing but it doesn't give much support if your horse is inclined to put in a stop/buck so I have spent some time on the ground, but I think this might be 'rider error'.
Quality: Its a little work of art! Really light, beautifully stitched. Quality of the leather is much higher than the more expensive GP I used to own
Summary: I would wholly recommend this saddle. It is straight cut so the horse moves beautifully in it as there is no restriction on the shoulder movement. It is very versatile and always looks great. They come up quite small so bear that in mind when ordering.
