Category: Reining Saddles
Purchase: I found this saddle at the local tack shop, and bought it for $850 with GST, to last me about 5 years until I can afford a Bob`s Custom Reining Saddle.
Likes: My horse is built very sturdily, and this was WIDE. It fits her very well, she's got a great amount of room in it to comfortably slide stop and spin. It's amazing for what you pay. The swell is nice and high, and the seat is deep, so I can do all my reining in it, and I can even do gaming if I wanted. The lowboy tree is great as well to keep from my reins getting caught. It also matches my bridle perfectly!
Dislikes: It's horrible to break this thing in! My feet always fall out of the stirrups when I reach back for a lead. I'm resorting to keeping the stirrups tied twisted to break it in while I'm not on it. That, and they are so slick! I have to really shove my foot into them in order to get on so my foot doesn't slip out. Also, there's the fact that my horse isn't a draft, I had a very hard time getting a cinch to fit with this saddle. Not even a 28" would work, I had to resort to my tiny little one that was used on my tiny pony years ago.
Quality: The leather is soft and flexible, the suede seat feels like a higher quality material, not like the cheap-y stuff that you can find. It's rather light, so I'm guessing it's a fibreglass tree and not wooden wrapped in rawhide. Then again, still can't complain for the price!
Summary: I am quite satisfied with this. I haven't had it for long, so I guess it'll just be down to how well this thing wears!
Usefulness Rating: 2.75 out of 5.
