Purchase: This saddle was bought for 1600 on ebay as a Christmas present for my 14 year old daughter whose seat is the same as mine already. I figured it was a good excuse to get a nice saddle which she might grow out of ... then it would be mine. We thought it was a great buy since it arrived almost new.
Likes: The leather was absolutely lovely. Although the saddle was listed as used, it did not show much wear. We were excited about front and rear blocks and it seems to somehow manage to fit both our thoroughbreds as well as warmbloods in our barn
Dislikes: The numbers were deceptive. The saddle fit more like a 17 than a 16. That was not so bad. However, neither my daughter nor I fit between the front and rear panels properly. During jumps, our legs would somehow flip back - never found our balance on this saddle. However, when someone else in the barn tried it with portlier legs, it fit her like a glove. I also could not feel the horse as well with all the padding it had
Quality: Construction was solid. Leather was ultra soft. For this reason, I felt I needed to place a towel between my stirrups and the leather after each ride.
Summary: It's a great saddle if you can find the perfect fit. Therefore, I would not recommend buying this off e-bay. Go somewhere where you can have it on trial. Having said this, I still would not buy another one because I do not like being so careful with the leather.
