Manufacturer: Crest Ridge
Model: High Prairie
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: $1850 I have been looking for a "good" saddle to trail ride in, as well a saddle that I can have custom for me. I like the looks of saddles as well as comfort. I got this saddle, on loan, directly from Debra at Crest Ridge Saddlery. Yes, as with any saddle company, I did have to pay for it to try it out. Debra, promptly sent this saddle out to me to try on a 4 day trail ride in Ward, SC.
Likes: I love everything about this saddle. If you look at Crestridgesaddlery.com and look at the High Prairie, you will see the unique and "old style" rigging. It tailor's to the different horses we ride. It worked well for our Rocky Mountain horses as well as our speed racking horses. I love it. Make no mistakes, this may look like an old west saddle (uncomfortable) but the comfort is UNBELIEVABLE!! The ride is second to none. I have to say, "This is the most comfortable saddle my ass has ever sat in!!!"
Dislikes: There is nothing I did not like about this saddle.
Quality: Quality is second to none. High grade leather, High quality workmanship, just all around great bang for the buck. And, if you want, Crest Ridge Saddlery will do custom work for you with a smile!
Summary: While looking for a good saddle to ride in, I have found a GREAT saddle that is great looking, comfortable and high quality. I have also found a company that is customer friendly and willing to go the extra mile for its customers. I did send the saddle back to Crest Ridge and thanked them for letting me try it out....wait, that is not the end, they are now custom building me my very own high prairie with my own personal touches. I like things that are unique for just ME!!! If you have any questions about this saddle, please email me email@example.com I am by no means a saddle expert, but my butt has sat in hundreds of saddles!! Sincerely, Lance Deloria Delzarfarm.com
