Purchase: I bought a 17" seat used on Ebay for $300. It was listed as a 16" and I recognized in the pics that the person had the tape measure in the wrong area.

Likes: I LOVE THIS SADDLE! I am an avid jumper with an 18h Holsteiner. It fits us both excellent and as body heat penetrates it molds to us both providing superior communication. I also use this saddle on a Quarter Horse and an Arabian and it fits great. This saddle is able to conform comfortably to virtually any horse. I need the recessed stirrup bars this saddle has. The seat is balanced and puts you in the proper position. I also really like the dark brown chocolate color as it goes with many different shades of other tack.

Dislikes: I wish the flaps were a bit more forward and the billets were a bit longer.

Quality: The leather is soft and supple and the tree construction is sturdy and flexible making this a very high quality and comfortable saddle.

Summary: Best saddle for communication and comfort. The soft and supple leather keeps me in the saddle longer than other saddles. Most affordable high quality saddle I have found.
