Purchase: I really wanted an english saddle for my gaited rocky mountain, but many english saddles dont fit rocky mountains. I purchased this saddle from HorsATack, it was on sale for five hundred (yikes) but i did a price match and got it for 445 from crazyhorsetack.com! And a free gullet change kit.
Likes: I love the very comfy seat! Great for trail riding! And the Webbers dont pinch at all! Even when riding barefoot in shorts (i did this the past weekend to see what it would be like in the summer) the billets are a tad short though.
Dislikes: The knee rolls were SOO prominent that it gave me bruises on my knees! But since you can remove them, not a problem!
Quality: The quality is AMAZING! I had a wintec western, and that one's faux leather isnt nearly as nice as the english models! The equisuede is pure luxury! And the seat is nice because its so soft and springy, 1) it doesnt need to be broken in and 2) it is so lush that its great for long hours in the saddle on trails!
Summary: This saddle is exactly what i was looking for! I'm looking forward to many years of great trail rides and 4-h shows with my 2000. The 'leather' looks soooo fake on the internet, but in real life, it looks VERY real!
