Dressage saddles normally have higher cantles. They also have more defined knee rolls and longer saddle flaps; in dressage your stirrups are much longer than in hunt seat, so the saddle flap and knee roll must be longer for that. They are always black, where hunt saddles can be different colors (ie. brown).
They have places in the saddle blanket to put the weights in , usually at the lower part of the saddle to make saddle's more comfortable for riders. For more precise answers, I suggest you google it or visit an international horse racing site.
