My New Saddle!!

It said "dressage style" so I figured it would work! Right? I'm going to give Denali a Spanish show name and take the dressage world by storm in this saddle! It was only 179.00 so I figure I could own 5 of these for the price of the Niedersuss Symphony.

Okay, I'm kidding! I was on eBay looking at saddles, and saw this. I'm still trying to wrap my head around how this would work for the horse/rider aside from the fact that this is super ugly!! It's only 179.00!

Still haven't decided on the saddle yet! Ugh. I hate spending money, although I'd sell my Harry Dabbs and make it back....Still!

Aren't there some real gems on eBay? I remember when I was looking for a reining saddle I stumbled across a "Brand New Premium" reining saddle for $250. Add another zero and I might believe that description. lol

HAHA! That was totally hilarious!
I too am looking for a more trailish saddle that weighs less than 20 lbs and closer contact would be nice...I think I need to get her fit though...not had much luck finding saddles to fit!
Good luck

I was trying to think of a polite way to say "What the HELL were you thinking" buying that piece of crap! So glad you were kidding!!

Well I did buy an Abetta Western Saddle for $300 so I suppose I wasn't too surprised by the price, but I've never seen a dressage saddle that cheap...and well...ugly. My Abetta, I think actually looks rather nice...and is very comfy. That saddle doesn't even LOOK comfortable.

Happy Shopping!
