Purchase: Took out on trial from a local tack store. They were asking $750 for it, lightly used.
Likes: It's an aesthetically pretty saddle, and it's well - made. The color is very nice, and the e-motion tree concept is a cool feature. The e-motion tree supposedly will adjust to each horse's withers to fit most horses. I'm not sure if this works or not, because I only rode two horses in it before I took it back. I did like the balance I felt in the stirrups for both flatwork and jumping. For jumping, I noticed that it kept you centered over the horse's motion. My tb/paint and appaloosa/arab both seemed to like the saddle.
Dislikes: I only rode in the saddle twice. But, after a few moments riding in it the next day, I felt a lot of pressure in my seatbones. The seat is so goshdarn HARD! Some people like hard seats, but this was downright painful. It's too bad; I liked the saddle otherwise.
Quality: Well-made, good quality leather. Looks like it's built to last.
Summary: I like everything except the painfully hard seat.
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
