Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I purchased this saddle for use on my extremely round barreled, mutton withered Missouri Foxtrotter mare. The saddle cost $1450 including shipping. I also purchased a 3/4" Crest Ridge/5-Star pad at the same time for use with this saddle. Previously I had been having problems with saddles rolling and slipping forward.
Likes: I measured my mare carefully according to the instructions found on the Crest Ridge web site. I received the custom made saddle in less than two weeks. The new saddle does not roll or slip at all. My mares gait improved, telling me this saddle fit her much better than my previous saddle. The seat is extremely comfortable. The saddle with endurance riding stirrups weighs in about 25 lbs.
Dislikes: I am completely satisfied with the saddle and even more so with the customer service.
Quality: The craftsmanship of this saddle far exceeded my expectations and is superior in quality to the more expensive Tucker and Ortho-Flex saddles I examined at a regional equine exhibition prior to purchasing this Crest Ridge Ovation.
Summary: This Crest Ridge saddle is superior in quality and nearly a $1,000 less in cost than comparable saddles.
Usefulness Rating: 4.44444 out of 5.
