16.5 Keiffer Munchen

Well, I have been looking online obsessively for a week or so (along with local tack shops/consignment, craig's list etc) and either haven't found anything of quality in my price range, or what I have wanted that would work for me and my horse has been waaaaay outside my price range.

I happened upon a small little tack shop today with several dressage saddles on consignment. I found a Kieffer Munchen 16.5 for $399..I offered them $350 and they took it.

Haven't tried it on my horse yet, but I am very very happy with the quality, condition, and reputation. And, I have been browsing around the internet and it appears that I got a very good buy. Hopefully if it does not fit my horse and I need to sell it, I will get my money back and maybe then some.

Anyone else know anything about Kieffer's?

Here is a pic of one that is identical to mine

Only downside: It's brown. Oh well.

My friend has had her Kieffer for over 20 years now and its still amazingly comfy, I'm not sure of the make though.

(And I love that shop, I can almost see it from my house lol. I think more than half of my income is spent there lol :) )

Brown is better anyway . I showed in a Brown dressage saddle for a couple of years and got nothing but compliments on it, from judges and fellow competitors. I think Brown is more classy .

It is AMAZING. I have had it on three different TB's, and it has fit all three very well, (one in particular it fit better than the other two..but it is really really close). Also, I have incredibly sensitive seat bones for some reason, and usually have to ride with a pad on the seat so I don't get sore...not with this Kieffer. It is SUPER comfy. The model is a "Grand Prix Internationale" or some such thing, so it is probably older than me lol..but it is truly wonderful. I am very happy with it. I haven't cleaned it yet, because I haven't had sufficient time to really clean it properly, but I am going to do it tonight. Wonderful saddle, can't say more positive things about it.
