Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: Local tack shop About $600.00
Likes: It has super wide gullets that support the Parelli's way of saddle fitting. (with their Theraflex pad)It is very comfortable for the rider as well. I like the adjustable long billets. It does not sit on my horses spine at all. i like the wide panels that distribute weight over a larger area.
Dislikes: Nothing really! I would say that if you are planning to jump some higher fences (4 feet +) this saddle may not be forward enough. It is a fairly straight flapped all purpose.
Quality: Seems to be holding up well and I like that it is easy to care for.
Summary: I have never been a fan of synthetic saddles since they didn't fit horses well when they first came out. This saddle has changed my mind! It was economical, fits my horse, fits me and is easy to care for. I could not ask for much more. I spent about $2500.00 on a custom saddle and fittings a few years ago. I still can't sell that saddle! It ended up fitting my horses and not me. To have spent so little and have something that my horse and I can both be comfortable with is super!
