Category: Barrel Saddles
Purchase: Bought it off of Ebay and I paid $500 with shipping.
Likes: Seems to be well made and it was one of the few that had a royal blue suede seat, which was very important to my daughter at the time. Very comfortable to ride in.
Dislikes: First I was sent the wrong size so I had to send the first one back and wait a few weeks more until I received the correct size. Then as I was oiling it I noticed that the stirrup leather on one side was almost cut all the way through. I didn't want to send it back again so I just kept it (because I didn't want to have to wait more weeks to get another one which would have made 3 saddles shipped to me!) even though I thought that was a cheap quality and big mistake on the manufactures part. Then after my daughter started barrel racing and putting more pressure on the horse to go faster, the horse started getting sore and we have made numerous trips to the chiropractor to get her adjusted. Finally we figured out it was the saddle. It fits too snug on the withers and makes our mare sore so we had to go buy a more expensive saddle and now we have to sell this saddle.
Quality: The quality seems to be O.K. except I think the quality control isn't good.
Summary: I was impressed with this saddle at first but now I know better than to buy anything less than a name brand saddle!!!!
