Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: Paid $500 off of ebay. Had only been used for showing so was in excellent condition. An absolute bargain!
Likes: I absolutely love this saddle! It is super comfy and puts you in a great position. Allows you to easily get your legs on your horse, making aids more effective. The leather is extremely soft and for the most part has worn well - i.e. not too much rub where stirrup leathers sit. Myself and my horse work so much better in this saddle and he can be fussy!
Dislikes: The only complaint I have about this saddle is that my girth points went a little off colour. The saddle is black, but the points have started to go a patchy brown.
Quality: Apart from the wearing on the girth points it is a quality saddle made from quality leather that has been built to last.
Summary: A great, comfy saddle that won't break the bank. Would probably be more suited to tb type horses, as gullet sizes are not overly generous.
Usefulness Rating: 2.57143 out of 5.
