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 PDS Showtime range is designed to maximize horse and rider performance. The PDS Showtime XCH Dressage Saddle features Ecological tanned calf leather, cut away panels, and outside knee blocks. The cut away panel is designed for horses with typical dressage horse conformation- longer sloping shoulders and set back withers- to allow freedom of movement to the shoulder of the horse. The knee block has been placed on the top of the saddle in order to enable the rider to remain secure in the saddle and to sustain a correct and balance position, especially when experiencing pronounced movement from the horse. These design elements will result in a noticeable increase in the horse's forward movement and its ability to extend.

    PDS Showtime XCH Dressage Saddle is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saddle for a hard to to fit horse I have searched for 2 years to find the best fitting saddle for my horse and for me. I'm a picky rider when it comes to saddles - I prefer a deep seat with large knee blocks. I've compromised what I like and quality to try to find a model that worked for my horse as she grew. Now that she is filled out, I think I've found our saddle for life. I adore it and so does she. It's wool flocked which is great for adjustability, but as a bonus, it also comes with the PDS XChange gullet system, so this saddle can be fit to a wide range of horses. Not to mention, it's absolutely gorgeous and has quality to die for. Highly recommend this beauty - you won't be disappointed!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Saddle The saddle is beautiful and looks like it would wear well. It was to small for my horse so I did not put it on him. Be sure when you try a saddle on your horse that the panels have at least 4 fingers width in order to clear your horses spine and also that the panels lay flat to distribute your weight evenly. The panels on this saddle were not far enough apart for my horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a saddle that fits I bought this on trial and loved the free shipping both ways from Smart Pak but after just one ride on my mare her trainer was in love with the saddle and the way it fit my mare we decided to keep the trial saddle.This saddle is the first item I have seen that is exactly what the manufacture says it is and I wish we had tried it first as our search would have been over and I would have saved alot of $$ shipping saddles back that did not fit.Not only does it fit the horse and rider perfectly but it truly does promote more front end movement a d my horse is moving much more uphill with it.
