We took the plunge and got a dressage saddle! It is a Passier Nicole Grand Gilbert, lightly used and in excellent condition. I've only ridden in a dressage saddle a few times (Dee and I borrowed one for a while) so I need to get used to it but it felt comfortable and I think I was sitting more upright. This saddle does not really force you in position, it does not have the huge thigh blocks or super deep seat. The seller kindly gave me the stirrups, girth, and a few pads to got with it so all we need now is a black bridle.
