Purchase: I purchased this saddle from Come Again Horse Camp in Leavenworth, IN. I custom ordered it with western fenders, western double rigging with 18" seat. Leather covered endurance stirrups with extra "D" rings and stirrup turners. I paid $850 + tax. The stirrup turners were an additional $10. I was told it would take 3 weeks to come in, but was pleasantly surprised to get it in 2. Thank you Come Again for being so great to work with. I ordered this saddle because I loved the McClellan like tree, and the good reviews of several fellow trailriders that have had Henry Miller Saddles for several years. I loved the Tucker saddles but could not afford the price. However after owning my Henry Miller, I don't think you could make me trade it in now for a Tucker.
Likes: I love how light weight this saddle is. It is supposed to be 20# but standing on my bathroom scale it is more like #18. It is very well made with soft leather. I love how comfortable the soft leather seat is. I just put 100 miles on it the first weekend I had it and there was no break- in time needed. I just went from a Circle-Y flex tree and a borrowed Tucker River Plantation and I think this one is much more comfortable and much lighter. The suspended seat gives a great ride. It has lots of extra "D" rings to attach your gear. It fits all my horses very well. I primarily ride it on my Paso Finos, but I have used it on a TW and Quarter Horse without any problems. I love how secure a seat this saddle gives me. I am 60 days into getting my mare going, and love the security this saddle gives me.
Dislikes: The only negative I have with this saddle is that it does not have rings for breast collar attachment. I attach mine to the girth "D" rings. Otherwise, I absolutely love this saddle
Quality: Henry Miller saddles are very well made. Saddle leather is very soft. The seat has neoprene under glove- like leather giving a very comfortable ride. I strongly encourage the added stirrup turners, as they ease knee fatigue greatly. I see myself having this saddle for many more 100's of miles
Summary: Bottom Line is this saddle is for any avid trail rider looking to put long hours and many miles in the saddle. It is very affordable but not skimped on quality.
