Purchase: I purchased this saddle last month from National Bridle Shop for $1,699.
Dislikes: I've been through more saddles than I can count trying to fit my two gaited horses. I finally rode a treeless saddle for about a year, but as I'm a big gal I knew that wasn't best for the horses. I kept reading great things about this saddle, but was wary since I couldn't go to a tack store and see it first hand. A friend bought a used Imus saddle, I tried it, and fell in love with it immediately. My horses are both gaiting better than ever (they used to only pace), and I can ride in comfort all day long. This saddle is AWESOME!
Quality: The saddles are being built by inmates at Colorado Correctional Institution, and I must say they must take great pride in their work. My friend's used Imus is nice, but we did a head-to-head comparison, and mine is built with even more meticulous care. The leather is soft and has already broke in nicely. The forward stirrups take the strain off my knees, which no longer hurt after a ride.
Summary: I can't say enough good things about this saddle. My husband has ridden a big Western stock saddle for years, but after riding my Imus he ordered one for himself. Another friend is saving up for one too. It's hard to describe how much more I feel "with" my boys Harley and Charlie. If you have a gaited horse this is THE saddle to buy. Brenda works with gaited horses, and her expertise is very evident in her products.
