As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Collegiate Intellect features the Easy-Change Gullet System so it can be adjusted for use on several horses comfortably. It has a moderately deep seat with flaps and knee rolls designed for correct riding position. It is made of pre-treated, soft yet durable leather. Complete with elastiflex tree, flocked panels, and “Y” girthing system. Flaps approximately 16” with large padded knee rolls

    Collegiate Convertible Dressage Saddle is rated 4.8571 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality at great price! I got this saddle a month ago and I am glad I did! The leather is soft, supple, and great quality. It feels as though it forces your leg into the proper position (which is great for me as I am new to the world of dressage, but some advanced riders probably might not like this feature), yet it is still a super comfortable saddle. This saddle uses the Easy Change Gullet System, which may or may not work for you depending on your horse; however, it allowed the saddle to fit my horse PERFECTLY. The only con I can think of is that I do prefer a deeper seat... this one is not that deep.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth a try I tried the collegiate intellect dressage saddle and thought it was very comfortable. The twist was an average size and I prefer it to be more narrow. Unfortunately my horse is somewhere between a mw and w gullet so I had to send it back. I absolutely LOVE the test ride program! It is awesome to be able to try a saddle, really ride in it, and get a full refund if it doesn't work out. Thank you Smartpak:)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle I got this saddle for my Tennessee Walking Horse mare. I wanted a dressage saddle because I don't like sitting on the weakest part of my horse's back in a cut back saddle. This saddle has a nice deep seat and puts my legs in the right position. This saddle is also lightweight. The only complaint that I have with this saddle is I noticed a slight tear in one of the billets after several uses, but nothing major.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny Very comfortable, very durable saddle. My pony has virtually no withers and the chiropractor gave this saddle the thumbs up, using a wide tree. The chiro also approved this same saddle for my draft horse once the gullet was set to medium!The pony has rolled while tacked up in this saddle and the tree survived. The knee rolls help me stay seated during rough rides.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saddle for a Great Price! I'm a newcomer to the dressage scene and hunted around for used saddles at all my local stores. I test rode 'fancy' saddles worth three times the price of the Collegiate yet none felt as good as the Intellect did! Quality leather, adjustable tree, wool flocked panels, all for under $1,000!! Can't beat this purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome First Dressage Saddle These dressage saddles are great! They are comfortable and help keep you in perfect position, but also they are really great value for money. The leather is nice and they are very well made. This would be the perfect first dressage saddle for competition and training. I love this saddle. I don't do dressage anymore so mine has been sitting around but the leather hasn't cracked or dried up at all... its still sooooo soft and supple. These saddles really do last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a saddle that fits AND is affordable!! If you have a hard to fit arab, this is the saddle for them. This leather saddle conforms to their back, is adjustable and is sooo comfortable. We use it on two of our horses and they both love it. Whether it's ring work or trail riding, this saddle does the trick. Can't say enough about it. And did I mention, it's affordable! Best buy ever!
