Model: Close Contact
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I needed a leather saddle for shows. I paid $625 not including tax. I bought it a local tack shop. I needed something that could fit my QH, TB, and my sisters welsh pony.

Likes: Nothing this saddle was of horrible quality!!!

Dislikes: The saddle's leather quality was awful. After two rides the stitching was coming out. Where the stirrup lies the color was already rubbing off after only three rides. The seat also felt off balance as well.

Quality: It was absolutely horrible. The seat was off balance and not of good leather. The flap that is next to your leg was becoming rubbed very badly. The sweat flap scratched extremely easily and the girt made poking marks on your leg and the sweat flap. Another problem was that it discolored my favorite saddle pad. My horse also didn't move out as well in this saddle. It put you behind the horses motion.

Summary: This is the worst saddle I have ever ridden in. I wouldn't suggest this saddle to anyone. I am so glad I could trade it in even after I rode in it. I would suggest you save up your money and buy a more expensive higher quality saddle. I would never go to an A rated show in this saddle either. The quality is horrible. I will never get an HDR again!!!
