Category: Barrel Saddles
Purchase: I have a hard to fit mare, that was being pinched in my Double J. Even so much, the saddle was causing her to buck and she threw me and when I landed, I broke a couple vertebrae and needed to go to the ER. Nothing against my Double J, it just didn't fit my mare correctly. I did not have a ton of money, but decided to take a chance with a Hilason Flex Tree saddle. I paid $445 and some change and bought directly from their store in Houston.
Likes: This saddle has truly made a world of difference. My mare does not offer to buck and is no longer stressed under saddle. The saddle is very comfortable and I find myself reaching for it even when riding my other horses.
Dislikes: The fenders are placed further back, would love them to be more forward placed; but its not a deal breaker.
Quality: The leather is good quality and well oiled prior to me receiving it. A lot of padding in the seat; definitely puts you on top of the horse.
Summary: Obviously, you get what you paid for; it is no $4k Cactus or Double J. But for the price tag, I am very pleased with my purchase! It is well made with good quality leather. From what I have gathered, Hilason has mightily improved the quality and design of their saddles in the last few years. I am glad I took the chance, helped me get back in the saddle!
