Continental Saddlery
Penni Gerardi Margarita Reiner
Reining Saddles



Manufacturer: Continental Saddlery
Model: Penni Gerardi Margarita Reiner
Category: Reining Saddles

Purchase: Purchased from Oliver with Continental Saddlery. Full retail for this saddle is around $3,000

Likes: Over the years we have dealt with many different brands of saddles and had gotten tired of constantly dealing with pinched shoulders and poor behavior due to saddle discomfort. This saddle has solved 99% of all our saddle fit problems (we train horses for a living so we're talking 20 different shaped backs a month). The leather quality is great, the fenders offer complete freedom of movement, the seat is amazingly comfortable and balanced, plus it is super lightweight! I don't have to heave and push to get the saddle on taller horses. It weighs about the same as a barrel saddle.

Dislikes: This particular model is really built for a woman (which I am so I love it) but most men don't like to ride in it (the build up in the front causes a little discomfort). This is fine for me but male riders should look for a different model or plan ahead and order a larger seat size than normal.

Quality: excellent! no complaints at all!

Summary: I rode english for the first 20 years of my life so my biggest complaint about western saddles has been both the lack of feel and the way they never seem to fit your horse well. This saddle fixed both those complaints. I can feel my horse nearly as well in the continental saddle as I do in my close contact jump saddle. If you really want to do the best for your horse's back this saddle is the way to go! The equiflex tree is amazing. I have noticed the trees run just a hair on the narrow side so if you have a very broad backed horse get the x-full bars. I believe they offer demo saddles so you can make sure which tree fits best before you buy.
