Purchase: I have a Thoroughbred that has high withers, with the typical slender build of many OTTBs. I had shopped saddle shops, shopped online and tried saddles from both places, having to pay shipping back each time and was getting very discouraged at finding a saddle that suited both my horse and me. A friend told me about a master saddle fitter, Annette Gavin,from All English, that I might find helpful, who didn't live too far away. She had both new and used saddles of several quality brands and, as I was looking for a used saddle, was able to fit my horse superbly with a Hastilow Piaffe, restuffing on the spot to fit my TB perfectly.

Likes: Quality leather and stitching is used throughout. This particular saddle had been a demo, so looked brand new. My horse showed an immediate difference in movement and comfort, while I also found it to be comfortable, sitting me in good balance. I was so excited to have found such a saddle. I have been using the Hastilow Piaffe over 4 years now, and am still very pleased with it. I have had it restuffed over time as my TB's shape changed as he got more fit, built more muscle.

Dislikes: I have found nothing to dislike about this saddle.

Quality: Quality leather. Quality, tight stitching. Easy to care for.

Summary: I love the feel, balance, depth of seat of this saddle. My horse still finds it very comfortable also.
