Purchase: A friend of mine had gotten one of these saddles and I rode in it and absolutely loved it! I recently started dressage training with my 5 year-old, 15.1 hand extremely sensitive half Arabian mare, and have found that most dressage saddles are too long for her. I ordered this saddle at a Schleese saddlefitting clinic we attended in May, and got it 8 weeks later. It's definitely not cheap (almost $5000) but you get what you pay for. It was custom made for my mare and it was the best purchase I've ever made! I could see a huge difference in how she moved with this saddle compared to my old Otto Schumacher.
Likes: This is the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden in! It has a single flap with an external thigh block, and I can really feel my horse in it. The seat is deep and really gives you a secure feeling. The leather was so cushy that there was no "breaking-in" period. The tree is fully adjustable, so it can be fitted to a different horse later on if I want. The workmanship is fantastic (at that price, it better be!), and it's a great-looking saddle. I just love it!
Dislikes: The only thing I don't like about my saddle was its price! ;-)
Quality: This is an extremely well-made, high quality saddle.
Summary: This is the last dressage saddle I will ever buy! It fits both me and my mare perfectly. We both absolutely love it!
