PostSubject: Which saddle??   Fri Oct 08, 2010 1:28 pm

So.....Im gonna be after a new saddle come the new year. I had a Thorowgood Griffin, it fitted Chance a treat and was a good saddle, i had it for quite a while but i just couldnt get on with the suede seat, it was giving me a real sore arse Shocked so i decided it was time to move on, hence i sold it a week or so ago on ebay Wink

I am gonna treat him to a nice new leather one Very Happy but i dont know where to start with all the different brands....im after a dressage or working hunter saddle, only becasue i plan to get back into the showing and do a bit of dressage as well. It doesnt bother me hacking in a dressage saddle, i wont be jumping him anymore so im not bothered about a GP or anything.

I am in love with the Bates saddles, the Innova is just amazing I love you but it will be too 'busy' for the showring Sad I also like the Albion SLK - anyone have this saddle that could give me some feed back? I also like the Bates Caprilli?

Anyone have a nice dressage saddle or indeed a WH saddle they could recommend for my intentions??

just to be biased I like the WOW saddles simply because I have their flair air system in my wintec and after riding on something so comfy I just can't get along with a flocked saddle! Wink good for pony's back too Smile

Have decided on a saddle guys. Its gonna be a BATES INNOVA......i spoke to the saddler yesterday and he said the standard knee roll is fine for the showring, its just the extended one that would not be any good, as it is too 'busy' !

Here it is, hopefully will get it around xmas time or just after Smile

Very smart, really nice saddle.

I love my dressage saddle and would never part with it. It's like sitting in a really lovely comfy chair. Mine is a Ryder Universal. I've had it now around 3 years and it is still as good as when I bought it.

Can't wait to see the pics of your new saddle when it comes.

Lovely!!!
