Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I paid $1400 new on eBay.
Likes: Is really well balanced and comfortable. I got the one with the large knee blocks, so it is really supportive. I also like that it has calf blocks to keep my leg from slipping back. I also like the price. The leather is really durable, so I know I will have it for a long time.
Quality: I would compare the construction and quality to Bates, but without the adjustable gullet. The stitching is tight and overall craftsmanship is good. I like that it has the gusseted panels so weight is distributed across my horse's back. It does seems to run a little narrow. The medium-wide fits more like a medium.
Summary: Great saddle! One of the best I've ridden in. Just hard to find in the US.
Usefulness Rating: 1 out of 5.
