Manufacturer: Specialized Saddles
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: i was trying to find a saddle to fit multiple shaped peruvians. it needed to be light and have a fairly high cantle. i found one used on endurance.net for $1000 and they were kind enough to let me have a trial (thank god).
Likes: it was light, had a fairly high cantle, not too long and the shim system was supposed to help fit multiple horses
Dislikes: it was poorly built. the angle of the bars were asymmetrical.i could see it and feel it. the velcro strips on the bars were not placed the same front to back. the billets were already showing bad wear even though the saddle had had minimal use. it was not very comfortable. i was really disappointed. i could feel a sharp edge under my thigh that was annoying after only a short while in the saddle. it did not seem to fit either of the horses i tried it on. i did not have a whole shim kit, but i thought it would fit better than it did. both horses would have required a lot of shimming.
Summary: i was very disappointed overall and sent the saddle back.when i wrote the company to ask them about it, they had nothing to say.
