Purchase: I bought this saddle about ten years ago along with my trainer's guidance. I paid $800. for it then, it was used and custom made for someone more financially blessed than myself. The saddle I was using, that I thought was okay, was not helping me ride correctly, rather making me work harder. It was time to do something.
Likes: It has treated me well for the last ten years. I don't treat it so well, but when I do clean and condition it, it is always a pleasant surprise how easy it is to care for.This saddle is extremely comfortable and the close contact is the perfect answer to short legs. I feel almost like a good rider when I am in this saddle. This saddle almost feels like cheating because I get to ride and not fight with myself for a correct seat.
Dislikes: There really is nothing I do not like. Only when I first saw it I thought oh no this will not work for me. Now I can not ride in any other saddle.
Quality: It has held up to my neglect and many hours of riding, the leather is still soft and not one stitch has come loose, even the girth straps are still okay, just starting to think of replacing them.
Summary: I hope I will get to ride in this saddle for another ten years. I have tried other saddle,quite expensive ones and this one always feels like coming home.
