    Oh my goodness, I actually like it! It would look smashing on my little black horse! Too bad it is 17.5 instead of 16.5 . Not to mention my name doesn't start with "C"...

    Wow! Just wow.

    I really like my Schleese saddle, but it's a tad bit plainer than that one (read: basic black).

    Will the freestyle be: Blinded by the light?

    That's some major bling

    It is rare to see a rider who is truly passionate about the horse and his training, taking a profound interest in dressage with self-abnegation, and making this extraordinarily subtle work one of the dominant motivations of his life.\"

    I'd so get it.
    But then again, its my plan to blind the judges as I go across the arena so they won't notice that my extension might not be as good as it could be! :P
    In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. 1300 pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.

    I actually like it to.... The fact that it's a Schleese helps

    My name and last name do not start with a C. But I am Canadian... does that count??

    OH OH!! My future dressage starts hugely long name starts with a C too!!

    Hmmmm, looks like a well-deserved case of buyer's remorse to me!

    Anybody remember the story of the bunch of DQs under the influence of cosmos who called in the custom saddlemaker and ordered themselves up some custom saddlery? Could this be the result?

    I LOVE THAT SADDLE.

    It would look DIVINE on my black horse, and my name begins with a C. Fortunately my ass is too large for a 17.5.

    IF you ever actually get it. This seller isn't great about delivering sold goods. Ask me how I know this.

    Not my cup of tea. Or my sort of saddle, for that matter.

    I love it. I'd like a black bridle with purple piping- if anyone sees one for sale, let me know.

    that saddle is a little flashy for my tastes. Maybe the red would be fine, but the C on the back is WAY to flashy

    My friend from the Netherlands was over visiting last week and she said that this is the latest thing, saddles with colour inlays.
    New colours, new fashions yearly, ... I guess that's one way to increase saddle sales, right.

    Her little niece (15 year old) had been bugging her parents for it for weeks now and they finally gave in and fitted the pony a new colourful saddle, as the old black one had become too boring............

    Yep. Supposedly got stuck in customs in Britain and never made it here. Bitch dealt me out of $100 on a bridle I'd "won". Several thousand e-mails, and never an answer. Never any refund, nada. And she was smart enough to stretch it out over 90 days, so I didn't even have the satisfaction of leaving negative feedback.

    The saddle that's the subject of this thread would be perfect for her, but the "C" on the back wouldn't be one of her initials.

    That saddle looks like it belongs in Hollywood! Not my style. I think dressage horses and riders look best in classic colors and styles, maybe a little bling on the browband, but that's it. the horse should be the bling, not all the accessorizing.
