Purchase: I bought my ALBION SLK in Germany 3 years ago. It is actually a company from Great Britain. I made research about a few good saddle companies (like Kiefer, Stuebben)and finally decided to invite a lady who was selling the brand ALBION and others also to come out to the location where my horse was at that time. She brought around 10 different saddles, also the brand "Albion" so my horse and I were able to test. It is very important that you AND your horse are able to test ride a saddle before you decide which one you purchase. I decided for the Model "ALBION SLK" and I paid 2,200.00 EUR. It was just the best choice for both of us.
Likes: The seat and the way my leg is positioned is extremely comfortable. Since I am riding in this saddle I made big improvements in the quality of my riding. I also love the color (dark braun). Not to many companies produce this color. My horse goes very well under it and very relaxed and also he improved a lot and I believe he has fun working since we have this saddle.
Dislikes: nothing - I like it just the way it is.
Quality: the cushions, maybe you call that pommel (sorry I am German and I don't know all words) which are laying on the back of the horse have a very soft and healthy filling. It is a flexible filling. That means, most filling are stiff and give a punktiall pressure. These don't. Especially for horses with week backs or problems in their back, this is turns out to have very positive results. The leather is nice and soft and the up keeping is not taking too much time. I am sitting in it like it is my second skin.
Summary: If I would ever have to buy a new saddle again, I would always buy one from ALBION again!!!! It was the best decision I ever made when it came to horse tack. It is worth every penny. Quality, comfort for horse and riding cannot be better. Riding and workout improvement is the profit! GREAT SADDLE
