Karl Niedersuss Symphonie Black Dressage Saddle
Size 45cm, which is between a 17.5 - 18
M tree, but very generous (more like a MW in other brands).
Made in Austria, medium deep seat, puts you in a great position for dressage.
Great starter dressage saddle. In good condition for age (1996). Leather, billets are all in good condition. Moderate fading throughout, and some watermark look on the seat. One of the pommel buttons has lost its color. In the gullet, under the panel, a seam has loosened (see pic). It has been there for years and not progressed and is virtually invisible.
I love riding in this saddle and the position it puts you in. Unfortunately it doesn't fit my horses (it is a very generous M tree, and I have 2 sharky TBs) so it's time to find something that does, but it is a great dressage saddle.
