Purchase: I have been looking for the right saddle to fit my hard-to-fit horse for a long time now. After trying my trainer's treelees barrel saddle, a Bob Marshall, I knew it was the one. I bought it for my tennessee walking horse. I paid in all about $1500, including the weight distributor Skito Pad.
Likes: The saddle is SOOO comfortable! I could ride the trails for hours and hours in it, the comfort is amazing! It puts you in a great position for barrel racing, or just pleasure riding! Because the saddle is treeless, it fits every horse i have tried it on so far! It is put together a lot better then most treeless saddles i have seen, and it looks more like a regular barrel saddle then some kind of alternative tack. My horse loves it! It also molds greatly to you and your horses back, so i recommend buying it new! It had very minimal break in time, only the stirrups were even slightly stiff when it first arrived.
Dislikes: They custom make each saddle, so it took 10 weeks to arrive after i ordered it. This isn't much of a problem, i love that they are custom made! It just had me anxious until it arrived.
Quality: It is so well put together! All of the tooling, the stitching, the leather, is all of such good quality! Amazing quality.
Summary: This is a really great saddle, all Bob Marshall's in general that i have tried have been this great. Really well made, with extreme comfort for the rider and the horse.
