Category: Jumping Saddles

Purchase: Bought this saddle at a local tack store for about $1,250 to replace my old, too-small, blockless saddle.

Likes: I really like the seat depth: not too deep to lock you in, but not so shallow that you go flailing everywhere in a bad moment. The blocks are great for bigger fences, but don't get in my way on the flat. The flaps are short enough for my short legs, but longer-legged people can ride in it without a problem.

Dislikes: The break in period was expectedly unpleasant (slippery), and the first two rides in it pitched me forward until the seat padding bottomed out. Now, nothing.

Quality: Well put together and really nice for the price.

Summary: If I had unlimited funds, it wouldn't be my go-to saddle, but as far as mid-range saddles go, it's great.
