Do brown dressage saddles exist?

Just looking for flat work/hacking, no jumping and don't want an AP. Everything is BLACK! Are there any brands that have brown dressage saddles?

I have one. Its an older (about 15 years) Niedersuss that was the best fit for me and my horse at the time. Its actually for sale if you're looking..

Umm... most of them will do brown.
It's tough to find them used because generally people buy black saddles but all of the decent saddle manufacturers I've come across have brown as an option when you are buying a new saddle.

Yes, I'd be looking for used. Everything on Ebay right now is black unfortunately.

What size is it? And if we're on the topic, do you guys think dressage saddles are better than AP/CC for strictly flat work and hacking, no jumping. Maybe trotting some poles but I prefer to keep myself (and horse) firmly on the ground. I'm starting in english after several years riding western and I'm finding a lot of conflicting information and opinions on the topic...

It depends. A dressage saddle is often more comfy for a western rider because you keep a longer leg. However, if you are going to be in the saddle for hours, you might either get an AP or a dressage that has a more forward slant to it, just so that your leg is not forced into too much of a vertical position. You want to have some freedom to move around if you are out on the trails. Also, AP saddle usually have some D rings to tie things to, and dressage saddles rarely do. You will also be more likely to find a brown one in AP than in dressage, though they do exhist.

APs are generally useless, at least the new style ones. Older military saddles are good APs.
If you aren't jumping, a dressage saddle is going to be the moat secure and allow you to have a comfortable position.

And for the record, I love my Niedersuss. I have the Allegro and its a lovely, correct saddle with no bells or whistles to get in the riders way.

Ok this is helpful, thanks. I hear a lot of chatter about Stubben Siegfrieds, that they're just all around good saddles for the type and level of riding I do. But they are AP, correct? Any opinions on those?

If you like Stubbens. I find they don't fit me well. Most of saddles is personal preference, but IMO most new style APs do not put the rider in a good position for dressage or jumping.

Ok. I don't mean this to sound snarky at all but if I'm not focused on either dressage or jumping, just really w/t/c proficiency and trail riding, do you think a newer AP could work?
