Purchase: I made the deal of my life when I found this beautiful saddle on consignment at a local tack store. I asked the staff if they could tell me about the saddle as I had never rode in an Australian saddle. They said the only thing they knew about it was that an old man kept coming in the shop and looking at it, saying something about how he should buy it and resell it himself! I quickly looked it up on the Internet and read about the legendary quality of Syd Hill saddles and bought it for 550$. I have never regretted it and wish I had discovered the Aussie saddle years ago.
Likes: Its a beautiful saddle, fine leather and workmanship. It has beautiful tooling and fittings. Despite its handsome appearance the best feature of the saddle is the safety and comfort, I can sit in it all day, and to date nothing my gee horse has done has got me even close to falling off! She has bucked, reared and jumped to the side and that saddle holds me in like I am glued on! It makes me look like I am 10x the rider I am.
Dislikes: Aussie saddles are a bit heavy, but I will never ride in anything else!
Quality: Top notch quality and craftsmanship. I understand that Syd Hill is one of the finest Aussie saddle makers. I also understand they closed down after over 100 years in business so if you find one, snap it up!
Summary: Writing this review makes me feel like I want to go out and buy another before it's to late. I highly, highly recommend everyone try one.
