Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: With a modest budget, I began my search at local tack stores, then after amazement at the high prices almost gave up. I looked on the the internet and found a couple of places, one being Southern Trails Saddle, very nice prices. I looked on here and saw good info about them. I paid 600.00.
Likes: I like everything especially the price, I was skeptical at the price when every tack shop for 60 miles wanted 1,200.00 to 1,500.00 for a basic trail saddle, I was assured by the person at southern trails that if I honestly did not think it was worth the price, I could send it back with no restocking, I took the chance and never looked back. What a nice saddle for the money.
Dislikes: I wish I had upgraded to the premium pre-oiled leather, I am kind of lazy and do not like to do those first few oiling required on a new saddle, but that was my fault.
Quality: Not an expert on construction, but nothing fell off, everything looked in it's place. have had it about 9 months and even after my goofy horse rolled on it one day it did not hurt it except for some scratches, but a little oil covered that up pretty good. Nothing broke or came apart, so I guess it was made very well!
Summary: I think I said it all before, you will not be disappointed!!!!!!
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
