Category: Barrel Saddles

Purchase: I got the saddle off of eBay for $350 shipped. I haggled with the seller to get such a great price. I was needing a round skirt saddle that would hopefully fit a couple of my horses. Didn't have a lot to spend.

Likes: I love the flex tree! It has more flex then any other flex treed saddle I have owned. You can feel the horse take a deep breath! The seat is very comfortable. I love the tall horn! My main horse is really short backed so I needed a round skirt. This saddle has a smaller skirt then most round skirted saddles. Fits a short backed horse well. I like that it has fit every horse I have put it on. Nice even sweat marks on all of them!

Dislikes: I wish this saddle model came in a darker color. I also don't like that it came with roping type stirrups. Instead of the barrel type. I will be changing them out.

Quality: The leather quality isn't top notch. But for the price it is quite acceptable. I wish the rawhide on the horn was thicker. But it will do. I also wish, since the stirrup leathers are not super thick, the leather's holes would be reinforced with nylon.

Summary: The bottom line is I really like the saddle. Esp for the money! Love the flex tree. The next closest thing to going totally treeless. The leather isn't top notch, but neither is the price. I would recommend it to some one who needs a saddle to fit different horses, but doesn't have a lot of money to spend!
