Isabell Dressage Synthetic with Cair and Interchangeable Gullet
Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Wintec
Model: Isabell Dressage Synthetic with Cair and Interchangeable Gullet
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle slightly used off E-bay for $555.00

Likes: Light weight and easy cleaning. I just hose it off and it looks nearly new. Comfort and correct positioning. This saddle puts you in very good riding position, without feeling "locked in." This saddle has a close-contact feel. The cair panels are wonderful. No pressure points ever! I like knowing that I have a gullet for any horse that I could ever ride. In the past, I have searched for months trying to find a saddle width for a certain horse. Those problems are over! The seat is soft. The synthetic suede on this saddle is very grippy when wet- a great advantage at shows. This is my favorite saddle. My more expensive Neidersuss and Kieffer saddles just sit in the barn!

Dislikes: It's a little cheap-looking compared to a leather saddle. The gullets are not easy to change. When I bought this saddle, I imagined I could use it on several different horses in one day by changing the gullets, but it is much too inconvenient to do so. Do not let this saddle be alone with your cats! The cats seem obsessed with using it as a scratching post and the synthetic material is easily damaged by them, compared to leather.

Quality: I have used the saddle heavily for more than a year and it is still very tight with no holes or significant wear marks. However, I do not believe the synthetic material will last nearly as long as good quality leather.

Summary: I would definitely recommend this saddle for the dressage rider who likes a close contact feel, and who appreciates lightweight, easy care saddles. The advantages of having an instant custom gullet width is the major selling point of this saddle. The Cair panels are clearly superior to flocked panels in my opinion.
