Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I purchased this saddle in new condition used at our local tack store for $600.(a real deal as it had only been ridden 5 times. I had just purchased a new horse- A 12 year old quarab with high withers and a short back. My other saddle- a crates that I bought in the same way used but in like new condition- was a little bit too long in the skirts for his back.
Likes: Very handsome saddle! Has a barrel-like seat that makes you feel secure but not restricted on the trail. If you like to do trail bit do play days too this would be an great saddle but it might be a little slippery for speed. Love this saddle! Crates are great saddles and I am pleased with both of mine.
Dislikes: This saddle is really squeaky but that should leave with a cleaning and conditioning. Stirrups that come with this saddle are really small for me but I do have big feet.
Quality: Great quality and hold up well.
Summary: Great choice for all around riding. really comfy seat and is very attractive in a dark havana.
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
