Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: I purchased this saddle second hand from the Broken Horn (Diamond Bar, CA)for $800 (new it is $1,750). It also came with a breast collar. The extra wide is an 8 3/4 inch gullet and fits my 14:3 stout Kentucky Mountain Saddle horse mare like a dream. I bought her after her foal was weaned and she was a little thin and out of work. After 4 months, my original saddle no longer fit her, she had stopped gaiting and was trotting because of her constricted shoulders. She immediately started gaiting once I put this saddle on her.

Likes: The saddle is well made, beautiful Amish leather and only weighs 25 lbs with endurance stirrups. The seat is comfortable for me and puts me in a good centered position.

Dislikes: Just my personal preference, but I would prefer a lower cantle. The cantle at 5 1/2 inches is higher than I wanted and I had to shorten my stirrups (I was riding very long) in order to be able to swing my leg over to dismount.

Quality: Very nice leather, nice stamping. Hardware is good quality, rings don't jingle but plenty to tie on stuff if you need it. I bought the matching leather pommel bag and the 3/4" wool pad and I'm happy with these accessories.

Summary: I am so happy I found this saddle that fits (really fits!!) my mare. I plan on custom ordering a lite model(codura fenders) with no horn and a 4" cantle in the future.
