Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: $5100 Custom Ordered from Antares Dealer at the Spruce Meadows Masters
Likes: I love the attention to detail that Antares offers. The stitching is impeccable and the leather second to none. I chose buffalo and its worth every penny. Super easy to break in and durable as ever. I love the color it changes into when its oiled and the stick the leather offers. I noticed a huge change in my performance when riding. The service I got was also spectacular. The Antares dealer had me sit in loads of saddles, allowed me to test ride a few on the spot and custom fitted my horse the next day! He was wonderful to deal with and very knowlegable about the products he sells!
Dislikes: NOTHING. I love this saddle there is absolutley nothing I would change.
Quality: The construction took the average amount of time for a custom saddle (about 3 months). It was exactly what I excpected with clear instructions in the box on delivery with what to do with the saddle. One of the nicest quality saddles out there.
Summary: WONDERFUL SADDLE. Variety of options to suit each riders and horses needs, although a little pricey, there is no better way to spend your money. My horse loves it and I do too. The quality and service are both superb. All their other products (Antares) that I have have stood up great to wear and look amazing.
