Model: 7754S Cross Trail
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I was looking for a new saddle that was all or almost all leather saddle that was of good quality and light weight, preferably an endurance or trail saddle. I found this site Horse Tack Reviews and started looking at all the reviews of trail/endurance saddles. I saw that Fabtron had high scoring reviews, not many but high scoring, so I went to their site and was really interested in the Lady Trail but not sure of the flex tree. I couldn't decide, no dealer near for me to go look at one. As I was reading my Trail Rider magazine on the last page was the ad for the New Cross Trail by Fabtron, I was very excited as it was just what I was looking for. It had an introduction price of $995.00, came with cinch,off billet and cinch strap,free shipping and they gave me a felt saddle pad. I e-mailed and had all my questions answered so ordered directly from Fabtron as it was not at the dealers yet.
Likes: What I love about this saddle is the close contact feel of an english saddle, which is what I had been riding and the secure feeling of the western. It is an all leather saddle and only weighs 22lbs.
Dislikes: If I had to choose something that I would change is maybe a little more padding in the seat, but then again I am in my sixty's so maybe it is me and not the padding, :-).
Quality: This saddle is put together very well, the leather is very soft and supple, very little break in needed. It is of good workmanship and quality, not a cheaply made saddle.
Summary: Bottom line I would and do recommend this saddle to my friends or anyone that is looking for a light weight trail/pleasure saddle made of quality leather.
