Here is an opportunity to buy a fabulous Prestige saddle that is not marketed in the U.... (read more)S! You generally have to go to Europe to find a new one or Australia to find a used one. The Prestige “Doge” features a deep seat with an elegant design to give you a secure feeling while maintaining a perfectly balanced seat. It features one of the most versatile gullet systems available. The Doge also offers a comfort that comes through softer padding in the seat and skirts. The front girth straps are positioned higher on the sweat flaps to help keep the saddle more stable during exercise. Soft calfskin covers the seat, skirts and knee rolls; leather covers the saddle flaps.
For those who may be looking for a slightly narrower or slightly wider tree, Prestige trees can be altered by a certified dealer. The seller obviously took meticulous care of this saddle.
Contrary to opinions circulating around on various blogs, this is NOT the European version of the Optimax!
