I was wondering if any one has, or has ridden in a Don stewart dressage saddle?

Are they nice to ride in?

What is the quality like? What are they worth?

Cheers Quillxx

Step away from the computer,
i have for many years, on the show galloway i learnt on then a tb ive been riding for a few months. i loved it although it gave me a sore butt every now and then, its a bit hard but i think it might just be old. however it 'put' me in a lovely position and helped me keep my legs back and sit the tbs huuuge extended trot and canter! but i dont think it suits every horse

love it!

a friend has a 16" don stewart for sale, looks to be a really nice saddle, she has a county in that size as well so doesnt need it. i could never fit in it so i have never tried it, but it looks to have a nice, deep seat, and fits a variety of horses well

Thanks for both replies!

I am looking at one already. I had just never heard of the brand before.

They are great quality Australian hand made saddles. I have ridden in a few and would buy one in a heartbeat.

If it was made by Don it would be quite an old saddle, but still well worth it if it is in an acceptable condition. Don's son Graeme was making saddles after Don retired but I am not sure whether Graeme is making anymore either.

Don's saddlery was near where I used to catch the bus to school and it was the most gorgeous old buidling with the full workshop. It was heaven!!!! Smile

(if you wanted to see what you can find by googling the surname is Stuart)
