All Purpose Saddles



Manufacturer: Kieffer
Model: Genf
Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: Purchased new from a friend. Retails for about $1000.

Likes: Everything!

Dislikes: There's nothing I don't like about it.

Quality: The workmanship is fantastic. This is a beautiful saddle. The outer material is entirely mircrofiber, and if I didn't know better, I would have sworn it was really suede. Gives a really nice grip, but not so tight that you can't move. The smooth underside is leather, including the billets, so it's easier to tighten the girth. The movable knee blocks allow you to maintain close contact with support, not interference and puts my legs in the perfect position. The narrow twist seat is densely padded, and extremely comfortable for those long rides, with no jarring at all in a sitting trot - good for your horses back! It has several plates that can be changed out easily with just a screwdriver to adjust.

Summary: A great saddle! Cleans easily by wiping with a lint free or damp cloth. Highly recommended! Adjustable plates offer versatility in fitting to differently conformed horses and ease in changing the width. Unlike other adjustable saddles, the plates spread out across the front, under the pomel, instead of down into the points, keeping the points softer and more comfortable for the horse. My horse was softer and more responsive in this saddle and wanted to stretch through his topline. He had move movement in his shoulder and the sweat marks it left on his back were textbook perfect for fit. I think he loved it too :)
