It is time for me to get a dressage saddle, yay!
I went to my trusted saddle fitter and he has some older (new) Prestige models available - of which the Optimax and the Grand Dressage were the most comfortable for me. I have not yet had these saddles on my horse. I am now trying to do some research on these saddles, but it’s proving challenging as these models are older and the Grand Dressage is not on Prestige’s website anymore, and I’m pretty sure the Optimax is an older model than the one on the website.
So my question here: Who has some of these older models and can give me their experience with them? Any reason to or not to go with them? I have a Prestige Versailles that I’m very happy with so I have no problems staying with Prestige.
What year was the Grand Dressage discontinued? How do they hold up after a few years? I am personally partial to monoflaps but my saddle fitter does not have any in stock.
Any and all advice would be appreciated!
