PostSubject: English saddle question   Thu May 21, 2009 5:26 pm

Since I can't seem to sell that darn Big Horn saddle that was too small for me, I have a chance to trade it for a Kieffer dressage saddle. Now, I know nothing of dressage, but I'm pretty sure Kieffer saddles are fairly decent and I should be better able to sell it in the future to recover my money. You never know, I may ride in it and actually like it

So, are they decent saddles and what are they worth new? I googled the style and it came up on several sites anywheres from 500 - 1000 pounds (British sites).

Pleasant Ridge has a used one for $960. I think I'll go ahead with it. Mine is absolutely no good to me and atleast the Kieffer is a 18" seat and would fit me. Plus, I sold all my english saddles so it would be nice to have one incase I got the itch to use it. Now just have to get them swapped safely between here and Gagetown. I'm think COD for shipping is the way to go.

That particular one is an older one, a more forward cut than some dressage saddles, but a Kieffer is still a good brand. They are a classic, like a Stubben, or Passier.

Let us know what you do!

What does that mean for the rider? I'm a complete dummy when it comes to anything english. I still think it's worth a bit more than what I'm trading, and I could actually get some use out of it. Better than looking at the other one collecting dust.

ETA: Looking at the pictures again, by forward, I think you mean that the panels angle slightly forward instead of straight down like most other dressage saddle I've seen. So does it feel more like a AP saddle then?
