Karl Niedersuss
KN Melodie
Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Karl Niedersuss
Model: KN Melodie
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: Trialed as one of many saddles which included Kieffer Lech Profi, KN Symphonie, Exselle Luciene, Exselle TLC,

Likes: Very secure seat feeling. Gave me a balanced & correct position instantly & easily(without any effort) thus enabling me to ride my green-young horse confidently even in his unbalanced canter. Fitted horse perfectly (16.1hh 3yo Warmblood x TB) wide gullet. Very nice softish seat.

Dislikes: The 43cm was a slightly snug fit for rider. The area under my thigh, (near the stirrup bars) pushed out a little - presumably because it's a wide gullet. The Medium wide & narrower ones probably don't do this.

Quality: Definitely one of the best quality saddles around. Costs a fair bit, but this is a case of 'you get what you pay for'.

Summary: Saddle suited me and the horse VERY well. I had the professional saddle-fitter attend and the KN Melodie was one of the top 2. I'm 5'6, 56kg(slim), average hips, longish torso, tend to like a narrow twist, and hate 'set back' stirrup bars(such as the Isabell Werth) which make me unbalanced so I sit on my 'fork'. Recommend this saddle for similarly conformed ladies.
