Sommer Egon von Neindorff
I love my Egon v Neindorff saddle. It is the most comfortable fit for me. The close contact and possibly the tree design seem to allow for a really clear feel of my horse's movement. Although I am far from a professional, I wanted to buy a close contact saddle that would help me learn to feel my horse's movement the best, this saddle has helped immensely.~nl~One caveat is that the workmanship I see in my saddle as compared to the Scheese, or other more expensive saddles is not as fine. However, for my horse (warmblood, in retraining) and myself this has been a great choice as I was more concerned about feel and function. ~nl~Another observation is that within the past year my mare who was very undermuscled and sore in the back when purchased has developed her back musculature so that now the forelift pad I had originally used is not necessary and the fit is perfect. She was very opinionated about the various saddles I tried on her in our early saddle search and this one gained her approval.
