For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Derby Originals
Model: Dressage Saddle
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I purchased this saddle on ebay from Tack Warehouse. It cost about $250 including all of the fittings. I originally bought it for my husband, who wanted to learn dressage, but the seller sent me the wrong size (sent a 16" rather than an 18"). It didn't fit my husband, so I kept it for myself.

Likes: The leather is quite soft and pliable for a saddle of this price. It is well-padded and quite comfortable to ride in. Unlike a lot of other cheap saddles, this one has decent quality leather for the money.

Dislikes: The irons leathers are cheap leather and are best replaced. This saddle does not fit well on most horses that I have put it on; it is quite narrow and doesn't balance well on warmbloods or stock horses.

Quality: Overall, for the money the quality is excellent. The stitches appear to be reinforced and nothing has come loose or broken in the 5 or so years that I have had this saddle.

Summary: If you are looking for an inexpensive schooling saddle, this one is for you. It is durable and pliable, and is fine for low-level showing, training, hacking, and schooling youngsters (people or horses!). Great saddle for the money.
