  4. PRESTIGE RIDERS!!! Did you UPGRADE/CHANGE MODELS? Same tree? Same fit?

    How do the Prestige dressage saddles (specifically, the tree) of the late 90s compare with today's models FOR THE HORSE (I'm considering an Optimax)?

    I also found the Vienna and the Duett IMPOSSIBLE to really ride in. Coffee table is also how I would describe it. I mean, I could SIT on it on a trailride or hike my stirrups and ride like a...

    I like Prestige and Custom Saddlery dressage saddles. Some of the top US and European dressage riders ride in these--and, I think, for good reason. I have chosen them because they fit me and my...
  8. Custom and Prestige

    The Custom rep up your way is really nice and NOT pushy at all. I've had a lot of success with mine. Charlene Blundell is her name. She is reasonable (price wise for fittings) and helpful. The...
  9. Do you use a Neue Schule bit? Which one? Feedback?

    Now that they've been on the market for a while, I'm hoping to get your opinions on Neue Schule bits. There aren't a lot of reviews out there that I've found.

    Which ones do you have experience...

    saddle slip

    The wrong saddle fit can make it IMPOSSIBLE to keep from riding up the neck. If it's too narrow, it'll ride right up the neck. It may just not be wide enough.
