Manufacturer: County Saddlery
Model: County Innovation Forward Flap
Category: Jumping Saddles

Purchase: A number of us had the local County Representative (Ingrid) come out to take tracings of our horses and allow us to try out different styles of the jumping saddles they make. I have known quite a few eventers and jumpers that love these saddles so after trying a lot of "off the shelf" brands at local tack stores, I decided to try a County. Part of what was holding me back initially was the price. At almost $3700 Canadian I thought I could get a cheaper saddle that would do just as well from a tack store.... Wrong! I have to say I am completely in love with this saddle. Included in the price was: the custom fitting, extra large thigh and calf blocks, extra grippy leather on the flaps, and the first re-stuffing after a break in time.

Likes: Absolutely everything! I bought the oakbark color which arrived a little on the light side, but after oiling as per the instructions, it is a beautiful deep mahogany. Super grippy and balanced. My legs are no longer "swimming" on my slab-sided, very narrow, springy , over achieving anglo arab. Now I really feel I can stay with him and land in balance ready for the next combination.

Dislikes: Nothing. Love it.

Quality: Buttery soft leather, beautiful colour. Top notch

Summary: I am a long legged tall rider on a slab sided narrow horse. I always struggled with my position and balance until this saddle. Now, nothing moves when it's not supposed to. Everything is SOOO much easier now. I would recommend this saddle to anyone- especially if your horse's conformation makes it a pain for you to stay in position while jumping . Service and quality are next to none and your horse will love you for it.
