Does anyone have one of these saddles I would like to hear your experience with it? Does it have a comfortable seat? A former student of mine wants to buy one sight unseen *(used) I usually prefer wool flocked saddles but I know she has her heart set on a french model so.....any opinions appreciated!!! How wide is the gullet between the panels (under side) for spine clearance? Thanks! Kim
When I went horse shopping I rode in one that was LOVELY! So after I bought the horse I went looking for the saddle. After some looking I took one on trial and thank god it was a trial! It felt like a totally different saddle in a very bad way :-( If I found another good one I would buy it in a minute BUT would never buy one without sitting in it.
The one or two AdT saddles I have seen are nice for the money if you must have a frenchie.
Their gullets can be wide enough but not terribly tall. In a continuum that ranged from something like a very flat Devon2000 or Butet to a tall Black Country or Amerigo, it's toward the flat end. But these are very fine differences.
