Purchase: I have a very hard to fit horse. He has high narrow withers, broad shoulders, and a short back. I had been looking everywhere trying to find a saddle that fit him. I just happened to run into a J&J Tack Shack and saw this saddle. It had a short skirt and TONS of wither clearance. I bought the saddle and was happy with the fact it was only $400. I should have known that I would have problems. I went home and put it on my horse and it fit like a glove. Just too make sure I called my chiropractor out to take a look. She came out and agreed that it fit perfectly. Just 1 week later I noticed that the front finder had come loose and I hadn't even rode in the saddle yet. With very little further examination I noticed that the screw that held the cheap silver concho intact had come loose and had also pulled a staple out in the process. I immediately contacted the J&J from which I bought it and they basically told me that it would be sent to the manufacturer or I could take it too a local saddle repair shop and pay for the saddle to be fixed. I took it to the repair shop to get an estimate and was told the saddle was a piece of junk if I couldn't guess that already...LOL. There was much more wrong with that saddle than what could be seen on the surface. After fighting with the J & J they took the saddle back and I am now in the process of searching for another saddle.
Quality: verrry cheap
Summary: I would not buy any other saddle from a J&J store...other than the saddle I love J&J itself....most of my experiences there have been good and other stores have been helpful.
