Are they cheap and cheerful or utter carp?
Do you mean the shires ones??
Assuming you do am not sure TBH.The general opinion is that they must be rubbish as they're cheap and that the gullet idea can't possibly work.
Having said that though I know of a few people that use them and rave about them and their horses certainly don't seem uncomfortable in them.
They *shouldn't* be any good,but proof of the pudding and all that,who knows:unsure:
Which type? My friend has older models for the kids. I wouldn't want any extra weight that this on them. You would b better opting for wintec or the other beginning with t forget name.
Some can be slippery.
I weigh about 8.5 stone so not that heavy? Not sure how old but it's the dressage model.
Barge and pole spring to mind also
They just look dead tacky to me. What's up with Hen's saddle?
Nothing wrong with his new saddle but I've been hankering after a cheap dressage saddle... you know for all the dressage I don't do!!!
I would for go for second hand but a better make. If you then need to sell you should break even.
Do you actually need a dressage model? Unless you have big knee rolls.
Newforest, I just fancied something very straight cut to allow for shoulder movement and I generally fancied a dressage saddle!!
Have you looked into these?
