Category: Barrel Saddles
Purchase: Bought from Roe Sales in Pontiac IL for $1,350 brand new.
Likes: I'm loving it! It was comfortable from the first ride, and has already stopped the "new saddle squeak". I used a broom stick to start turning the fenders the night before my first ride with it and they turn out nicely now and are staying that way. The seat it very comfortable and puts me in the correct position for staying centered over my horse. I have two very differently built horses and it's sitting well on them both. The tooling is beautiful as well as little extras. A matching flank strap was included with it which was a nice surprise.
Dislikes: Nothing as of yet (well, besides the price, but that's to be expected). I ordered a 15" and it actually measures a 15.5" but I don't mind since I like having room in the seat of my saddles. So as a heads up they run a bit large.
Quality: Beautiful tooling, great attention to detail, and just enough bling to make it pretty but not over the top. The fleece is very thick, and the rawhide covered wood tree comes with a 10 year guarantee. It's a handmade saddle made with Herman Oak leather which very nice.
Summary: Excellent saddle! I'm very pleased. I had to wait six weeks because they where on back order from the manufacturer, but the wait was well worth it! I've heard nothing but food things about Reinsman products and am now a believer myself.
