Category: Reining Saddles
Purchase: I bought my saddle through the Continental dealer in Nova Scotia, Kevin Wile. I paid $3100 shipping and taxes in 4 years ago, and I bought it because I was looking for a quality reining and general performance saddle that would fit my Arabian. The Little River Reiner has short skirts (25"), so it was perfect for her and like with all Continentals, it can be customized to fit you and your horse (tree size, stirrup length, color, seat leather type, etc.). I even asked for different conchos then the ones that came standard and they put the ones I wanted on, no questions asked.
Likes: I like that I was able to get it customized to fit my horse and I, as both of us are hard to fit. The leather is excellent quality and if you take care of it and store it in a bag, it'll stay new looking for a long time. It doesn't have a lot of silver on it, but it's still nice enough to show in and I get compliments on it all the time. It's the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden in and makes the cheaper saddles I was used to riding in, feel like cement.
Quality: The saddle was really well made, the leather is high quality and from the other Continentals I've seen, this is consistent for them. The stirrups are also pre-turned and that saved me a huge headache.
Summary: I would recommend Continental to anyone looking for a high quality reining saddle, particularly if your horse can't fit in an off the rack saddle. After I bought mine, the owner of our barn was so impressed with it, she bought two of the longer skirted Continentals and now shows and trains in them full time.
