Reining Saddles



Manufacturer: Continental Saddlery
Model: Rancho Pro Reiner Saddle
Category: Reining Saddles

Purchase: I acquired this great saddle from the manufacturer in December 2009 for $1700. I was looking for a good all around western saddle for my short-backed horse. Working with the company directly was a good experience as they helped me determine which model would work best for my horse. They were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They have a very good saddle trial program that enabled me to try the saddle on my horse before purchasing it. This company is terrific to work with.

Likes: My horse loves this saddle! He works very happily and long in it, giving deep strides and great energy. I believe that this is the best saddle he has ever had (as much as you can tell such things) because he works so well in it. It is extremely comfortable for me as well. The flex panel design is wonderful, and comfortable, for both horse and rider. The seat cushioning is very, very good. I love the pre-turned fenders as well. The workmanship of the leather, with its beautiful tooling and silver work, is noticeable and stunning.

Dislikes: There isn't anything I don't like about the saddle.

Quality: The construction and quality is impressive. Very high quality leather in a lovely chestnut color is used throughout, with quite nice tooling and great silver work. The preturned fenders are absolutely wonderful. Adjusting the stirrups is easy and they can be finetuned perfectly to the rider's legs because they have holes with short spacing. I don't want to brag but I get a lot of compliments on the saddle.

Summary: Overall, this is the best saddle available. I am impressed with the design and construction of the flex panel because my horse and many horses at the barn who ride in the other Continental saddle at the barn are all very comfortable and happy with this saddle. And it is very, very comfortable for the rider as well. Those two qualities would distinguish a saddle, but to add the beauty of the saddle - the high quality leather, the tooling and the silverwork - really make this a standout. I am very happy with this purchase.
