Manufacturer: Black Country
Model: Tex Eventer
Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: There is a rep in Texas and many people I know have these saddles. I prefer a rep that is local in case I need the fit adjusted. I rode in a 17" saddle and also tried the mono flap - preferred the dual flapped saddle as it gives me a little lee way with the forwardness of the flap. I have a smallish horse and a long leg - max size saddle he can have is 17.5"...even with an extra forward flap I probably need an 18". Even the too small saddle was awesome. Loved the balance and easy ability to sit at the fence w/o falling back.
Likes: I got the buffalo leather flaps with scrumpf seat and knee rolls. Very grippy - picked black and dark brown - wish the brown was a little lighter for more contrast. Finished it up with silver welting. Turned out really classy looking. Stitching excellent quality Use it for xc, stadium and show jumping. Even use it for the occasional hunter trip I do.
Dislikes: Came out a little wide for my horse - fitter unable to really correct issue and I was charged for that??? Works great with a 1/2 pad underneath. Will have my dressage saddle fitter correct the situation.
Quality: Excellent quality - no gripes about the workmanship at all. Had saddle order to in my hands in less than 3 weeks!
Summary: Highly recommend the saddle - not to sure about the quality of their fitters.
