Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: County
Model: WB (older model - 1992) 17" #4 fit
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: Purchased used on a Ebay Auction for $512. Had been looking for this particular saddle since I got my new mare because of other reviews I'd researched.

Likes: This saddle has fulfilled every expectation of fit and quality I'd hoped for. I would have been happy with less, BUT I did not need to be. The fit for both my horses (Shire mare and Mustang mare) and for myself is incredible and the quality of construction and leather is outstanding. I wish I'd discovered County saddles before I retired my Trakehner gelding and perhaps I wouldn't have had to retire him before now (but then I wouldn't have my Shire mare). I am no longer fighting my position as it all seems so natural. I can feel my horse's back. I rode in it the first time in plain riding tights - no chaps and yet I felt as secure as I would've in full-seat breeches and tall boots - and this on a rather fresh mare in season!

Dislikes: Absolutely nothing except I'm regretting waiting so long to try one.

Quality: A++++. Tree is rock solid and leather is extremely supple, yet has enough body to stay in that condition - this is a 16 yo saddle! There is no noticeable fading so the dye and tanning is of excellent quality.

Summary: I would happily recommend this saddle to anyone. Probably any of the County saddles. I know this is a discontinued model, and I have to question why. It is such a lovely ride.
