Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle used for $675 in 2007. It was in excellent condition and just needed some leather conditioner to look brand new.
Likes: It has a classic look, puts me in a very good position, is affordably priced (before going the company stopped selling this model it retailed for $1,100 in my area) and has a comfortable seat.
Dislikes: The paneling was fairly hard and felt cheap (I believe the company used foam rather than wool in this model though I'm not sure). And it did not fit several horses that I tried it on (it always seemed to bridge). It was quickly replaced.
Quality: The leather is of average quality (which I guess should to be expected from a cheaper saddle) and though not very supple seemed like it would last a long time.
Summary: I would suggest making sure that this saddle fits your horse well before purchasing it. It's not worth buying a more economical saddle if it's going to make your horse's back sore and make his/her under saddle experience unpleasant. Other than than having a hard time fitting it to horses, it's a decent economical saddle.
