Likes: Dixieland gaited saddles arent just for gaited horses! I have an arabian mare that has been very hard to fit. She has a very broad and flat back with big round shoulders and well sprung ribs. Cynthia at dixieland gaited saddles shipped me 7 different trees to try on her. I sent her pics and she examined them and wanted more pics and was still not satisfied and had me push down in the center of the tree she liked best and see if there was pressure anywhere and there was in the shoulders. So she said she would use that tree, but make it a half inch wider. It was the draft tree! I also was able to customize it to me completely adding very cute conchos, flattening the seat so I could move easily into a left or right seat for doing dressage. She also placed the stirrups directly under me so I dont sit in a chair seat which helps me be very balanced. The stirrups are also turned to keep any strain off my knees. The butterfly style is cut so your leg lies very close to your horse. All this and the saddle is very lite. I got the endurance stirrups which are very comfortable. My horse is now as comfortable as when I rode her bareback. I thought I would never be able to ride her with a saddle that fit. This saddle is like having a dressage and western saddle combo. it is the first western saddle I've ridden in that I didn't struggle to sit in balance. Before I was always in a bit of a chair seat and would be behind the movement of my horse. Now I can be WITH her.

Dislikes: There really is nothing I don't like about this saddle.

Quality: The leather is very soft, the seat is nicely padded, but not too padded. The tooling and conchos are very nicely done. A very high quality saddle that is constructed beautifully.

Summary: Cynthia was very fast to respond to any of my emails and she has cornered the market on what all riders want. A high quality custom saddle that fits the horse and the rider is nice to look at and affordable!!! And she can and does fit all breeds!!!
