Category: Reining Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle from Double H Western Wear in Oregon. The service was on point. They returned phone calls when they said they would. They emailed before you thought to email them. I live in Maryland. I had several tack shop who were a Crates dealer and shopped around. Double H customer service was excellent and I will use them in the future. They had the saddle shipped directly from Crates and only took 2 days. I paid 1680.00 shipping was free.
Likes: Saddle is very comfortable I am short with a 24.5 inch inseam and worked well for me. Also my husband sat in the saddle and he is 6' foot tall and he fit as well. It's been a week and I have already got the squeaks out by using Mink Oil. Very easy break in. Pre turned stirrups a plus Saddle fit my horse like a glove. I am used to riding in a Cactus saddle and will say Crates is way better. So glad I purchased. I have also had Dale Chazez, Billy Cook, and a Tex Tan and had a custom made Orthoflex. This saddle is the best saddle I have ever had. It's' a keeper for sure.
Dislikes: I can not think of one thing I dont like about this saddle. Maybe the stirrups the are cheaply made, not made by Crates, compared to the craftsmanship of the saddle.
Quality: The saddle's craftsmanship is flawless. I can not find one mistake on it. You can tell that they take there time making this saddle and they check it 3 time before they move on.
Summary: This saddle is well worth the money and I will recommend this saddle to everyone and also Double H Western Wear. It fits me and my Quarter Horse. I have moved some saddles in my time and it is the best at craftsmanship, the ride and the fit. Props to Crates.
