Dressage Saddles



Manufacturer: Sensation
Model: G3 Dressage Treeless
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I decided to try a treeless dressage saddle because my horse has a very oddly shaped back. I went through about 5 different saddles, trying all different shapes and sizes, until I finally decided to just try a saddle that will mold to his back. You have to buy this saddle through a dealer. The main company is called Nickers Saddlery and is based in Canada, but there are several dealers in the US that will have a saddle shipped to you. Price varies depending on the currency of Canada compared to the states. I paid about $960 including shipping.

Likes: This is my new favorite saddle of all time. I have had it for about 4 months and will never go back to another saddle. It is extremely cushiony and comfortable. It's like riding on pillows. It's got a very deep seat. You can adjust where you want your stirrups to go, so you can make sure that your leg is positioned nice and straight under your hip. They give instructions to do something weird with your stirrup leathers, and they tell you that if you try to ride with your stirrup leathers the way you would in a normal english saddle that the buckle will bother your thigh, but it does not. I ride with them the regular way and I ride with good leg contact and position and it does not bother me at all. They have many different color choices and it is no extra charge to get different shades of brown or black. Most importantly, my horse is SO happy that he can finally use his back without pain. His back muscles have filled out, he's moving with big strong motions, and he's not still resorting to his ouchie habits that he'd started developing with the other saddles. This saddle works with regular dressage girth, saddle pad, and stirrup leathers.

Dislikes: At first, the pommel feels very large in front of you. It took me about two days to adjust to having it there. It's hard to explain, but the pommel feels like it spreads out very wide so when you post, your thighs sort of bump into it. It does not look really big or stick out or anything, but compared to a regular dressage saddle, it just feels different. I got used to it after only a handful of rides though, and now it's no problem. In fact, it might help someone who has difficulty getting out of a chair-seated position. Now that I'm used to the difference, it doesn't bother me and there is nothing that I don't like about this saddle.

Quality: I have not had it very long, but as far as I can tell the quality is perfect. The leather is very nice and the saddle is put together very well.

Summary: I absolutely love this saddle. It was comfortable from the very first day I got it, and my horse loves it. I can't really explain how comfortable this saddle is, but they do offer demos to try it out. I purchased without trying a demo and I am so glad I did. I highly recommend this saddle.
