Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I purchased directly from the saddle fitter. It cost roughly $1500 with the cost of the fitting
Likes: I love this saddle! The knee blocks are customizable and very comfortable. I currently ride in the medium kneeblock, and have yet to try any of the others. I was a bit concerned at first about the velcro, but the saddle fitter assured me he'd never heard of the block coming undone. The saddle is very deep and balanced. My horse loves it, too. She used to pin her ears at her last saddle, but doesn't react to her new one The trial period is very generous, too.
Dislikes: My only suggestion would be to check the billet length - the girth I have (a 30") doesn't fit her because the holes in the billets don't go up far. I'm sure there's a reason for this, but I have to buy a new girth to ride in. Also, I had to get a 19" seat when I normally ride in a 18". I think it's because of the cutback and the deep seat. it still didn't help the ego any :-)
Quality: This saddle is great quality for the money. It seems very well made. it's not broken in yet, but once it is, I'm sure it will be even more comfortable.
Summary: I love my saddle! Fits me and my horse perfectly!
