Flex-tree Barrel Saddle Cheetah Print
Barrel Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Hilason
Model: Flex-tree Barrel Saddle Cheetah Print
Category: Barrel Saddles

Purchase: Bought this saddle from eBay, looking for a cheap barrel saddle that will fit all my horses. Paid $400 with shipping.

Likes: I like the cheetah print on the saddle, and the amount of fleece on the underside of the saddle. Flex-tree seems to be ok-quality wise.

Dislikes: I dislike most everything. The flex-tree "flexes" WAY too much, you cannot get on your horse with this saddle from the ground if you're horse is quite large or if you aren't the quickest at getting on. It will literally slide right down the horses side to the belly, no matter how tight you tighten the cinch. I've also heard that instead of helping the horses back, some peoples horses are actually getting MORE sore. I also think the horn on this saddle is too large and the "rawhide" on it is chinzy, seems more like toilet paper wrapped around the horn. The leather is thin and not good quality at all. The hair on the saddle (from the cheetah pattern) wears off quickly as well.

Quality: Construction i don't like, you see alot of things that you are not supposed to see on a saddle (like screws, etc.). And quality, well thats just a complete fail!

Summary: Do not buy these saddles, i've heard of many problems with the company AND the saddle itself. If you need a cheap saddle for a child that gets set on their horse then, i guess it may not be too bad for them...but for a regular adult, its near impossible to get on! I guess the price shows the quality, but i'd personally rather just save the $400 towards a GOOD quality saddle!
