Purchase: I custom ordered a saddle to my specs and paid a total of $1483 which included shipping.
Likes: I really like some of the features of this saddle. The seat is deep and comfortable/secure. The turn ready stirrups are fantastic, with no knee pressure. I also had the endurance stirrups added for comfort. The tooling is beautiful, the saddle is built well. My favorite feature is the flexible gaited horse tree. It moves so well with the horse, you can feel your horse reaching up under you, and the horse can bend his rib cage with much more ease than in a regular stiff tree. I really love the tree!!
Dislikes: I ordered the saddle with maximum silver. It is dressed up nice with conchos, silver latigo and cinch holder plates, as well as swell plates, but I would have preferred slightly more silver for show. But, I understand that it's hard to put silver on the rounded skirting vs. square skirting. They can dress up the square saddles a little more. However,this is only cosmetic, so its not a big factor on the function of the saddle. I'd still highly recommend this saddle for show or trail.
Quality: The saddle is well constructed and very comfortable. Great quality saddle for the price.
Summary: If you have a gaited horse and like to feel the natural movement of your horse and like your horse to be able to bend and stay supple, this gaited tree is a super option. Very comfortable.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
