Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought it brand new on ebay for $250 (including bridle, girth, and saddle pad)several years ago and since then have sold it for $150.

Likes: It is an okay saddle for the price I paid. It has knee rolls and blocks which is always nice and even looks like a more expensive saddle (more at first) It also fits a wide variety of horses from Thoroughbreds to Paints.

Dislikes: It is hard to keep my leg in the proper position and the seat is quite uncomfortable. And after a few rides it begins to get wear marks from your leg and stirrup (this is normal but it happened a bit to soon than usual with this saddle) It also needs lots of oiling before it's ready to be ridden in.

Quality: The quality reflects the price, definitely not a high end saddle for rated shows but good for people not so into showing or only doing open shows.

Summary: I'm glad that I bought it, it served it's purpose before I bought a better quality Nice Saddlery saddle and then eventually a Stubben. I ended up selling it to someone who would get more use out of it. As I said, not for serious showing, but great for less serious riding.
