Dura-Leather Endurance Saddle
Trail Saddles

Manufacturer: Shenandoah
Model: Dura-Leather Endurance Saddle
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: I purchased this saddle online after much deliberation from Horse Tack Company. I paid $309.99 for the saddle and added trail stirrups to it for an additional $28. I was wanting a well made synthetic saddle that was affordable and durable. I purchased the semi QH bars model, but they also offer a full QH bars for a bit more.

Likes: I LOVE this saddle. It has some sort of memory foam seat covered in real leather, and is one of the most comfortable saddles I have ever sat in. I have already put quite a few miles in on it and it is a superb fit for both of my endurance horses. It has plenty of rings for your gear and extra long leather tie strings in the back. Honestly this is a much better saddle than I was ever expecting. A friend of mine is purchasing the same saddle after seeing mine.

Dislikes: I was not fond of the stirrups it came with. There was nothing wrong with the quality. They were just a tad small for my boots. That is the reason I purchased trail stirrups at the time of my saddle purchase. It is purely a personal preference on my part.

Quality: The quality and construction of this saddle is A+. Everything is symmetrical. The tie rings are real brass. The fleece underside seems to be very good quality. The synthetic dura-leather material seems to be sturdy and looks much better than I expected. The stirrup leathers while nylon are reinforced with the dura-leather material. I was expecting a cheaper looking saddle but this saddle DOES NOT look cheap. I couldn't be more happy with my purchase.

Summary: Hopefully this may help someone who has wondered about this line of saddles in making a decision. I did hours of searching for info and just could not find any reviews good or bad. After talking to the distributor and several places which sold this saddle online I decided to go ahead and take a chance. My horses and I are very glad that I did.
