Leather City (Jeffrey & Jeffrey)
Western Leather Endurance Saddle Like Tucker
Trail Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Leather City (Jeffrey & Jeffrey)
Model: Western Leather Endurance Saddle Like Tucker
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: Bought over eBay. Saddle, bridle, reins, breast collar, string cinch, and wool blanket were $293 plus about $50 for shipping.

Likes: The saddle leather was actually pretty nice -- it didn't smell and wasn't stiff. In fact, it was quite soft. The seat was nicely padded and embroidered. There were lots of D-rings and the saddle was very attractive looking. Interestingly, the wool blanket was the exact one that was on a very expensive saddle pad I'd bought 6 months ago. The bridle, reins, and breast collar all matched and were quite attractive looking. I did end up sending it back to the vendor, because it didn't work for my horse. So, far they've been very nice, so we'll see how much of my money they'll refund.

Dislikes: The tree was shaped more like an english tree and the pads that go along the horse's spine were made out of hard foam. I weight quite a bit, so it was not comfortable for my horse. The seat was quite slippery. The cinch ring had a flap of leather over it that stuck up under my leg when cinched. The bridle, reins, and breast collar were made of a strange material -- maybe leather with plastic coating? Anyway, they were quite rigid. The cinch was very poor quality and all shifted to one side when a friend was mounting, so she was thrown back to the ground.

Quality: I'd say the outfit was probably worth what I paid for it. It was not the same quality as Tucker, but it cost 1/5 the price and was a pretty close replica.

Summary: I took a chance on ordering something over eBay, based on a picture and a low price. Had it had a western tree, I would have kept it and used it. However, I would not use the bridle, reins, breast collar, or cinch. The vendor has been easy to communicate with and I have hopes they will refund at least part of my money. I've elected to go with a cordura saddle at this point.
