Purchase: I bought this saddle on ebay for $315. dumbest purchase I have made in a long time.
Likes: It was easy to clean.
Dislikes: I didn't like: just about everything. This saddle is stiff, bulky and uncomfortable with no hope of it "breaking in" because it is a synthetic saddle. The minute I got in the saddle I hated it. It was also slippery. I could not seem to get contact with my mare's sides and really had to move my leg to give aids. I don't know what possessed me to get this saddle - I think it is my enthusiasm about riding after a hiatus of 30 years - I just want to get all the "horse stuff" I used to have in my youth! An impulse purchase I urge you not to make. I bought it for $315, now I have to sell it at a loss for $250. I went out and promptly bought a Stubben and breathed a sigh of relief. Call me old fashioned, but this saddle really disappointed. It looked so good in the photo. Do not buy it. It will set your riding back noticeably. Sorry Wintec folk, but that was my experience.
Quality: Like new. The construction was actually excellent - attractive and seemed secure with no flaws. That actually did impress me.
Summary: I am really disappointed I bought this saddle. Costly lesson learned.
