I've only heard of a Keiffer Wein
my favorite keiffer is the lusitano :cool:

The Rhein is an older model and has been replaced by the Athen Olympic. (as per Kieffer website)
What do you want to know about this saddle?
If you have a serial number, you could email Kieffer directly and get more info from them also.

They have an open seat, velcro-in the knee blocks. Fits wide backs, wide across the withers well. I had one - hated it, a friend tried it and loved it so much she ended up buying it.
It is an older model and hard to find, especially in very good condition.

I rode in one years ago when they were first available. I loved it then. Now, due to some back problems I find all Keiffers to deep for me.

They are nice saddles. Deeper seat than the Wein. I liked the removable knee rolls (underneath the flap with velcro, like a pocket). I was lucky and bought mine for $200 in perfect shape and sold it for $500.

Thanks for the replies! This was just what I was looking for. I was bidding on one on eBay and the seller didn't offer much of a description. I know the Keiffer Weins are well liked, so I'm hopeful this one will work for me. I've been looking for a good but inexpensive dressage saddle for a while now. Just won this one for $350! :D I'm so excited to get it and try it out. Now, off to shop for a girth, leathers, stirrups, and a black bridle.... Wheeee!
