Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I was borrowing this saddle from a friend for three months before I got my own saddle.
Likes: This saddle was good practice for my leg to be more solid with a plain flap and a pencil knee block.
Dislikes: I really hated this saddle. Nothing about it was good. The gullet was so uneven, it was ridiculous. The seat twist was awful, so it caused the entire saddle to be very uncomfortable for me. This horse did not like this saddle either, but it was the best thing in the barn that would closely fit(I stuck a half pad under it). I didn't like the plain flap, but as I said, it helped in teaching my leg to be more solid, which it is today.
Quality: This saddle's quality is good, and nicely constructed. It got rained on once, and cleaned up so well. It's a beautiful saddle and holds up nicely to everyday use. It doesn't scratch easily and it's durable.
Summary: This saddle wasn't for me or the horse. The seat twist did not suit me and that made the saddle's seat very uncomfortable for me to sit in. I would never use this saddle again, now that I have my own.
