Manufacturer: Royal King
Model: Roughout Training Saddle
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I found this saddle on ebay for $550 on the recommendation of 2 friends who own the same saddle.
Likes: This thing is SO COMFORTABLE! You will not find a more comfy saddle for this price. It rides like an expensive show saddle. I use it for schooling and everyday riding. A trail rider would love this saddle because it is comfy and has lots of d rings to attach gear to.
Dislikes: The "silver" isn't really silver, it is cheap nickle silver. The stirrups that come with it attach with a modified bolt/covered nut, and the nuts come loose during riding. Invest in some good glue or get new stirrups!
Quality: Great quality. Stiching is nice and even, leather is good quality. Girth D are correctly placed, stirrups are hung further back for good leg placement. Only downfall is the silver (see above).
Summary: If you want a comfy saddle for cheap, and don't mind the roughout leather, buy this saddle. It rides better than my $2000 Chavez saddle!
Usefulness Rating: 2.8 out of 5.
