Dressage Saddles



Manufacturer: Duett
Model: Fidelio
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I acquired this saddle from my saddle fitter. I had explained to him that I was having a difficult time finding a saddle that fit my 17.2hh high withered TB and myself. He recommended the Duett Fidelio 32cm tree size. He had a 17.5" seat and we tried it on my horse; it fit him great, but I needed an 18" seat. He brought one out the following weekend, I tried it and bought it that day. It needed very little fitting to my horse and fit me great. I paid $1500 for this saddle.

Likes: From the first time I rode in the saddle my horse moved so much more freely than he had ever done. I felt very comfortable in the saddle. I have to say that I have only ridden in hunt seat saddles so a dressage saddle is pretty foreign to me, but this saddle made me feel good about my position, etc. I thought the seat was going to be too deep, but it's not at all. It's easily broken in and very well made. It has beautiful leather and the best part is it has removable knee blocks in 3 different sizes. I use the largest size for me. I have tried many different dressage saddles and this one was by far is the best I had tried. My horse is pretty good about telling me he is uncomfortable and he certainly is very comfy in this saddle.

Dislikes: I would have to say I have nothing I dislike about this saddle. It looks a lot like an Albion and people have mistaken it for one. The price is very reasonable at $1500 for a new dressage saddle. It fits me and my horse wonderfully. I'm very happy with the Duett Fidelio.

Quality: Wool flocked so it is very adjustable. It states it's made for wide backed horses, but the 32cm tree fits my TB very well. Beautiful leather, Herm Sprenger stirrup bars, Y billets. Very nice quality saddle.

Summary: I couldn't be happier with my saddle and I'm glad I finally found a dressage saddle for me and my horse. It's a great purchase!
