Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle for $400 used. It was in excellent condition and fit me and my horse well.
Likes: It fits me and my horse very well. It's comfortable to ride in (some people might find the seat a little hard) and helps my equitation by putting me in a good position for flatwork. The leather is absolutely beautiful. I don't know how old mine is but it still looks like what I'd expect from a brand new saddle.
Dislikes: The only thing I have to say is that the seat is a little deep to do a lot of jumping in. I'm buying a close contact saddle for jumping as well and using this one for flatwork.
Quality: I have no complaints. There is no wearing under the stirrup leathers. The leather is very good quality.
Summary: I would pay double what I did for this saddle. I have no regrets about buying it and will never sell it.
Usefulness Rating: 2 out of 5.
