Purchase: I bought this saddle in a saddle package online from Stateline Tack for $139 on sale. I decided I would give it a shot since the price was so good.
Likes: I like the aesthetic of the saddle. It is very clean looking and unique. Almost everything on the saddle is synthetic except for the billet guard, but the synthetic isn't made to look like leather, instead, it is made to look like synthetic. The saddle flaps are smooth, sturdy plastic-like synthetic while the seat and knee roll are fabric-like. In build, it is more similar to a close contact than a dressage since it has forward flaps and a low pommel, but to still be near the middle ground it has slightly longer flaps and a high cantle. I got it in brown and I love the shade. The flaps are lighter than the seat and knee rolls giving it a nice contrast. The entire saddle is a rich shade of brown with a slightly reddish tone. It also includes dee rings to attach training aids. The saddle is decently comfortable, nothing incredible, but you won't be sore at all. The fabric seat has a grippy effect so you stick to the saddle well. The saddle is a flex tree and it is lightweight, so it is comfortable for the horse.
Dislikes: The leathers are a little difficult to attach at first since the bar is pushed back to prevent it from bothering the rider's leg. As the tack loosens up it becomes easier, but it still makes it more difficult to adjust when on the horse. The billet guard is too tight on the billets, so it makes it difficult to move. Otherwise, I have no complaints.
Quality: Seems sturdy enough. I have jumped in it, flatted in it, xc schooled and hacked out in it. Compared to other saddles in its range it is very well made.
Summary: This is an excellent saddle for a lower level rider whether you are just starting or learning the lower levels of showing. Even when you move to the upper levels it is a good saddle to bring out when you want to hack out.
