Purchase: I bought this saddle on crazyhorsetack.com for $999 a few months ago.
Likes: Pretty much everything. I love the sticky-ness of the equisuede, and it makes it so easy to care for. I literally just take a cloth and wipe it down and it looks brand new. The aspect that made me buy this saddle was the way it locked my body into position. I ride a 17.2h warmblood who has VERY forward downwards transitions. In my old leather saddle, when he transitioned downwards i would literally slide forward, sometimes almost out of the saddle, because of his size, quick stops, and heaviness on his forehand. This saddle stops me from moving and locks my legs in place. Since buying this saddle i haven't fallen ONCE because I'm glued to the spot. i love it!
Dislikes: The only aspect i don't like is that it collects dust easily, and now i find it very hard to ride in leather again. Also, i find i let my horse get away with being heavy on his front end more because it no longer affects my seat.
Quality: The quality is very high, I've been riding in this saddle everyday for the past 3 months and the only wear marks are some around the stirrup leathers, but other than that it looks immaculate.
Summary: Overall, i love this saddle. Its great for anyone who gets unseated easily or has a very forward-heavy horse. Your whole posture improves with this saddle, and i would recommend it to anyone.
