Purchase: I paid $750 for this saddle, i bought it from sycamore creek saddlery.
Likes: it's light weight. stylish designing.
Dislikes: the stench from this saddle is unbelievable. and am putting another $350 into it to get it usable. the underside is padded too thick, and the slippery upholstery leather is not even stitched around the padding. the cinching design is ridiculous, I have a nice withered horse and can not mount this saddle from the ground without it spinning off her back. when i contacted Tony Pritchard about my problems with it, he never responded back. I had no recourse through paypal because it took too long to get to me. they have a good concept on this saddle and that is all. the stirrup straps were supposed to be 2.5 inch and are 1 inch. the stirrups are leather covered iron, not the aluminum that they boast about. they were also youth sized. i can only hope that once i get the 3 inches of padding off the bottom side of the saddle that it fits my horse. the cinch is lined with indoor outdoor carpeting. 1" nylon strap is the cinching system. I can not use this saddle until it is refurbished by a real saddle maker. very disappointed.
Quality: quality of the leather is great, quality of the saddle is okay, construction could use a lot of refinement.
Summary: overall i would not purchase this saddle if I were able to see it in a showroom, the construction is lousy. the cinch system is unsafe.
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
