Thornhill
Vienna II
Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Thornhill
Model: Vienna II
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I needed a saddle with a 20" seat that was of good quality for under $1,000. I bought this saddle online from saddlefitter.com for $950 plus shipping and handling.

Likes: The leather quality is very good for the price. The tree is well made and solid. The stirrup bars are positioned well.

Dislikes: The twist is on the narrower side which makes this saddle an uncomfortable ride for a person like me who has wide seat-bones. The flocking is harder on one side than the other, and the billets were very uneven when I first purchased this saddle. One of the stamps indicating the seat size is upside down, and the piping above the gullet is uneven.

Quality: The leather quality is very good while the construction could be better. By the way the saddle is constructed it seems that the manufacturer did good quality work until they got towards the end and then rushed. It was made in Argentina by a company known as Jorge Canavas. Better quality control, especially on the flocking and uniformity of the parts of the saddle, would make this the saddle to beat quality-wise. Construction is what really brings it down.

Summary: Although this saddle could be very comfortable for some, I wouldn't recommend it for women like me who have a wide pelvis and therefore wide seat-bones. The only problems that I have come across with this saddle have been related to construction.
