Megan Perrin has recently purchased an Equipe Emporio dressage saddle through the Equestrian Hub. Although at first she thought the knee blocks would be restrictive, it has been love at first ride.
I was looking for a saddle that would give me close contact to the horse and a secure seat, Megan said.
When the Emporio arrived, I noticed that it didn’t have an overly deep seat and the knee rolls looked rather large – I was convinced it wasn’t the saddle for me before I even gave it a test ride.
I gave it a try anyway and was pleasantly surprised. I had close contact to my horse when riding and very secure in the saddle. The knee blocks don’t get in the way at all and I’m not restricted or forced into position.
This saddle is great for sitting trot, it hugs you into the seat and gave me security and confidence. I highly recommend it to anyone –it’s also super light to carry!
