Dover saddles?

Anybody know anything about the dover saddles, particularly the dressage saddle? Are they good quality leather/tree? Do they put you in a good position? Do they seem to have "last-ability"?

There are good and bad opinions about them on internet. You are talking about Circuit, right? I personally never tried the dressage one, but I did close contact and I found it to be very comfortable. I ended up getting more cheap Collegiate though.

Yeah the main complaint I have read is that the stirrup bars are a bit too far forwards so you have a tendency to have a chair seat in the saddle. I found one for $300 in good shape, but I am thinking that the back panels are going to be too curved for my horse.

I don't know much about them, but I'd go for a test ride and see how much you like it. Dover's great about doing th test rides!
