Trail Saddles



Manufacturer: CTK Saddlery / Sycamore Creek Saddles
Model: TAS012-A Trail Saddle
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: I found Tony and Sycamore Creek on ebay and purchased from his tremendous web site, after having had personal contact through phone calls and email. I paid $550 for this saddle, and no one who has seen it out here in cowboy country can believe it. The shipping was very efficient and all arrived in perfect condition. It is amazing to finally have a saddle that fits my Rocky Mountain horse, and have it so affordable!

Likes: This saddle weighs 19 pounds...very easy for this old lady to handle. It is beautiful and very well made; one of a kind! It fits my horse well and is very comfortable for me. An extremely wise purchase, especially for the money.

Dislikes: I had to order twice, as the first one was made a little differently than I had ordered it. However, Tony was 100% customer service-oriented, and offered to order a new one immediately and trade. What a tremendous guy to work with! So, even what I didn't like turned out to be what I liked. The new stirrup style is great, except for the weight. They are pretty heavy. However, I haven't yet broken my horse's ribs when I put the saddle on.

Quality: To be honest, I was expecting the WalMart of saddlery at this price. I don't know how CTK produces such a fine quality saddle for such a low price. The leather is very nicely conditioned and finished. All of the rings, dees, etc., are strong and beautifully finished. I ordered the felt lining, which is thick and resilient. While this saddle may not be found at Harrod's in the polo shop, it would stand proud aside saddles many times its cost.

Summary: Don't hesitate to try one of these saddles. The saddle, the price, the quality, the fit, appearance, customer service and Tony all make Sycamore Creek Saddles a top choice.
