Question Dressage saddle

I'm thinking about purchasing a dressage saddle. As much as I'd like to get a name brand like Pessoa or Collegiate I don't think I could afford one unless it was used and a really good deal.

Does anyone know anything about Silver Cup Supreme? I saw one for sale but not sure if they're decent. I also saw a synthetic one for sale but it came with a package that included bridle, pad, and girth so that made me think it wasn't a good purchase.

I know every saddle is different for every horse but if anyone has any tips that would be great.

I used to have a old Crosby Freestyle that I bought second hand for about 350$ . it was a really nice starter saddle, and I sold it for what I paid for it, a few years later.

this one has a tear on the seat, which you could cover in tape . IF you want a cheap one for just learning in, this might work.

Crosby Dressage Saddle | eBay

Make sure they guarantee the tree is not broken.


this one is much better:

Does Pessoa even make dressage saddles? Never heard about them frankly.

Puddi, if your finances are limited go with the used one instead of new junk. Collegiate, MT, Crosby, Stubben - you can find something very reasonable priced and in a good shape.

Forgive me. I don't know why I said Pessoa. It was late and I had looked at a ton of saddles that were dressage and all purpose.

Pessoa does make dressage saddles, FWIW. Not that that's super relevant to the discussion, just wanted to clear that up.

I looked that up and they indeed have them on Pessoa site. I wonder if they are not popular or what, because while I've seen lots of jumping, I've never seen a dressage one in any store around.

I have never seen one IRL either. I think they are a fairly recent addition to the Pessoa product line.
