Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle at State line Tack for $120 before they left Petsmart. I got a really good deal.

Likes: I like everything. It's synthetic with a suede-like seat and knee roll area that provides a good amount of grip and comfort. I've ridden 20+ miles of hard riding and my seat bones were not sore. It's got adjustable velcro-backed knee blocks, very easy to move and they stay on perfectly. I feel very secure in this saddle. To clean it, I just hose it off! I love not having to oil leather and it still looks and feels just as good as the day I got it. I like being able to ride in inclement weather without worry.

Dislikes: The tree "settled" after a month or so as others described and it turned out to be wider than I needed. I inserted the largest fish and use a corrector pad so it doesn't fall onto my horse's wither area and it works fine. I wish it had more D rings. The girth strap cover ripped on one side. Since it's cosmetic mostly, it's not a big deal to me, but worth mentioning.

Quality: No flaws yet except for the girth strap cover. Padding is good, seat is still comfy a year and a half later.

Summary: Good saddle for the price.
