I just spent a bit of cash on a dressage saddle, the Kieffer Wein DL Professional, and I'm wondering what everyone knows/thinks about/of them. I'm an eventer, and it was time for me to invest in a saddle specific for the dressage phase. I've ridden in the Kieffer Wein, and Zip moves a lot better and easier than in his jumping, and I really liked the feeling, but I was hoping someone could clarify what the difference is between the Kieffer Wein and the Kieffer Wein DL Professional. I couldn't find anything online, sooo... anyone?
Additionally- I have a week and a half to "learn" to ride in the new saddle before my first event. We're only going BN, but I'm worried anyways. =] Any tips to be able to figure out the best length for stirrups? Any excercises you know of that will get Zip and me used to it faster (other than just riding in it!)? I have a feeling 8/10 of the days I have will be spent in the dressage, just working on getting used to it, but any advice, differences you notice, difficulties you've encountered when you switch between Dressage and Jumping saddles, etc, would really be appreciated! =]
