hiya sure this subject has been broached before but, I havent found a saddle as yet, as comfortable to ride in for the show ring as my dressage saddle..
i have tried a couple and i am just not buying into it, I have come to the conclusion that maybe I will just do the season with my dressage this yr as its stressing me out a bit! lol
I know its not completely PC but if it fits my horse and its really, really comfy surely thats a good thing to feel secure as a judge...rather than it just looking nice ..

anyone else show in dressage be interested to hear back from you and other opinions..thanks!! x

I always show using a dressage saddle long as it fits the horse & the rider, is in smart/tidy enough condition & does'nt have huge big knee & thigh rolls, I can't imagine a judge would take issue with it. I have several friends who are on the ridden panal & I know non of them would ever place a horse down the line, just because it DID'NT have a showing saddle on! Kim

Both mine are in dressage saddles but with no knee blocks to still straight cut. never had any comments on it being incorrect.

hi angela thanks for your feedback...I will bear that in mind looks like I will be 'dressaging' for the time being then!

I have shown in my dressage saddle but only under judges who I know to ride with a "long leg" or those who have a dressage background.
I still use my show working hunter saddle for judges who ride short, often those with a show pony background or who ride with a "forward seat". So, for me, it really depends on who the judge is.
