The title says it all. My hunt for a dressage saddle continues (Hopefully I can get a ride to a real tack store soon and really start experimenting!
), and the current front-runner in the price/quality department is the Wintec Pro Dressage with flocked panels, but I want to do more comparison between the original and the Next Generation models. The market for used dressage saddles here is pretty much nil, and eBay
scares me as far as actually getting one that fits, but I do like the idea of a leather saddle. So, what are your opinions on this Paris Tack saddle? English Saddles : Paris Tack Dressage Horse English Saddles : Tack Wholesale.com
The price scares me for a new saddle, one tends to get what one pays for, but at the same time price is a major concern for me. The only higher-end brands that are available in my area are brand spanking new, and priced in the 2 grand plus range.
So, what are ya'll's thoughts? Yay or nay for a starter schooling saddle?
