Category: Barrel Saddles
Purchase: I got this saddle at State Line Tack for $550. The things I don't like about it is that the stirrup leather became easily damaged for two reasons. The first is that it got scuffed and worn within only about 6 months of use and it turned a weird color where the suede rubbed away. It's cheaper then I would expect for a $550 saddle. Is $550 cheap for a saddle?
Likes: The things I like about it is that it looks beautiful and is very comfortable.

Summary: Well if I knew what I know now about this saddle I wouldn't have bought it. If I could return this saddle I would. Even though I like the way the light saddle looks on my sorrel horse I think getting a dark leather saddle would be better because it would hide the damage better then a light saddle. Plus I would put more money into my next saddle. It would be worth it.
