Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle approximately nine years ago from a dealer at Equifest for $160 new. It came with matching bridle/reins, bit, girth, stirrup leathers, stirrup irons with pads, and a quilted saddle blanket. I rode western and was looking for a cheap starter saddle to learn and show english at 4H and open shows.

Likes: It has stood the test of time, I used it vigorously for about three years and put it in storage for about four years and recently pulled it out to use and it is still in good condition. It fit my horse well. A good price for a younger person on a budget.

Dislikes: Not high quality leather (duh,look at the price I paid) The buckles on the stirrup leathers rub the inside of my thighs. The fenders stayed pretty stiff even with conditioning and use. The coloring on the felt knee flaps rubs off some for awhile, so when you first start riding don't use nice new pants:)After two years some stitching on the knee rolls came loose but it was totally fixable and only cost $12 to fix it.

Quality: Taking into account the price, the saddle is well constructed for what you pay for. It is totally usable.

Summary: It is a good saddle for what you pay for, and is totally usable and lasts a long time. However it is not a high end hand crafted saddle such as a lot of the German saddles. So if you are past being a beginner and/or showing circuit shows, I would not suggest you buy this saddle. But, if you are a beginner, 4her, or just want to try out the english discipline for awhile this would be a good saddle.
