Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle used on Ebay for $300.00. When I received it, it was in excellent condition and looked like it had barely been used.

Likes: I love the longer flaps on this saddle and the seat is very comfortable and forward. Not the MOST comfortable saddle I have ever sat in, but it is comfortable.

Dislikes: The one draw back with this saddle is that it has VERY short billets. On large horses, I have to use a girth that is 2 to 4 inches larger just to compensate for the short billets. Other than that, th saddle is great.

Quality: The saddle is made very well. No loose threads, very nice leather, that is easy to clean and oil. everything about this saddle is well made.

Summary: This is a great starter, beginner saddle. Looks good in the show ring and is good quality workmanship.
