Question Anky Dressage Saddles

Anyone have, or has ridden in, an Anky? I'm considering the Anky fixed tree dressage saddle in Buffalor leather. I'd really appreciate any thoughts / reviews!

IMHO they look weird unless you are 7' tall. Not a huge fan of the construction and how restrictive they are either.

Try one first and see how you like it though! Good luck!

I've got one - it suits me and my horse just fine. My parents gave it to me for christmas 4 years ago, it was slightly used and was in excellent shape.

There are other dressage saddles that I have sat in that I like better such as Neiderseuss & Passiers, but for Training/First level work the Anky is just fine :)

I sat in one and being honest didn't like it. BTW, I tried Neiderseuss out of interest today and didn't like it either. As well as Albion. Lol! I'm very picky when it comes to my own bum.

Passier is very nice though. If you have extra $$ you can look into Black Country Eloquence. I tried one and its just AWESOME. I WISH I'd have that kind of money. County is another very comfy brand I really liked.

It never ceases to amaze me how different we all are when it comes to saddles! My daughter and I recently shopped for saddles and everything she loves, I hated and visa versa. I just started trying dressage saddles and I sat in a stubben perzival and a courbette and did not like those. I rode in an older wintec and a Kieffer and did not like them either.

I've got an Anky, and I adore it. I don't find it restricting at all. It's a fantastic saddle and I've had a few friends try it out and really like it. Try before you buy of course. I've never had a problem with it, which is good considering the amount I paid for it...

I hate them. BUT, my legs are about 1/4 of the length of Anky's and about 5x as wide!! I look like a 5 year old kid riding in one, the flap comes to my ankle :S
The seat feels ok, but like Anebel, I found it restrictive. Obviously I do not have the right body type for it!
If you're going to spend money on a saddle, TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!!

Thanks guys! Everyone definitely has their opinions! I like the narrow twist, and feel of the seat. The flaps do feel a wee bit long even though I'm 5'7". The knee blocks are as big as I would want but I'm questioning the fit on Zee. I picked up a med tree on trial and my trainer is going to take a look at it tonight. I'm not sure if the panels are wide enough in the back for his wide flat back. I am looking at the albion all too ...

I am down to a Passier Corona or the Anky Salinero and I'm leaning towards the Corona only due to the reviews. I am short but I have already spent about $300 in sending saddles back as there are no tack shops around. Bates is out totally. I wasn't against their style or fit but they send me not one but three defective saddles direct from the manufacturer in a row.
