I've been riding dressage for about 2 and a half years now (3 years come spring) and so far have been riding in an all purpose english saddle. I've decided to pursue dressage further and am now in the market for a dressage saddle. I've found this brand: Thornhill Germania Klasse Saddle and was wondering if anyone had any experience with it. Or had any recommendations as to brands. (My budget is not over a thousand dollars severely; I can go over but not outrageously so. Definitely not close to $2,000!) The other brand I've been looking at is the EquiRoyal Newport Dressage Saddle.
I live in an area where there are very few dressage riders (only three that I know of) and there are no tack shops (let alone any that sell dressage saddles) so a good trial policy/return policy that any specific company has would be great! :)
Here are the links to the ads of the saddles I've been looking at:
EquiRoyal Newport Dressage Saddle Pkg - Horse.com
Thornhill Germania Klasse Saddle - Horse.com
So any help would be greatly appreciated! :)
