Purchase: I went to a German Saddler in Cuxhaven, Germany to try to find a saddle for my (at that time 1992) Anglo Arab who was hard to fit. I don't remember how much I paid but for me it was a lot (over $1000.00 at least). But the Saddler informed me that the saddle would flex and shape with my horses back as he grew and changed muscles and it would form to my shape as well. Also it might be the only saddle I would need for a long while.

Likes: Boy!! Was he correct!! I still have this saddle today and have used it for Dressage, Hunting, Jumping, all day Trail Riding, and even now after 15 years when I clean it up it still looks almost new - no color loss, wear or tear evidence, etc. I now have a new Andalusian and this saddle fits him as well, which pleases me to no end! This saddle fits me like an old favorite pair of shoes and no matter what other saddles I have used or tried you can't seem to get me out of this comfortable saddle.

Dislikes: There isn't anything I don't like about this saddle.

Quality: The saddle is a 17.5 inch deep seated with long flaps, the black leather is very soft and it seems to be resistant to wear and tear.

Summary: My husband has gone through 4 inexpensive saddles in the same amount of time! I am happy I initially spent the money on quality over quantity. This saddle sits so balanced and secure for both the horse and me - I can ride any horse, even a western trained horse in this saddle and perform well!
