Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I have 4 students that have all purchased this saddle. Two purchased the saddle new for $700.00-$800.00. Two purchased their saddles used for $400.00-$500.00.

Likes: This saddle puts a solid, quiet leg on just about every student I have put in it. It allows them to sit correctly and not be jarred loose, even during a refusal. They are stylish in the show ring and comfortable for both horse and rider. It has fit every horse in our barn ranging from the warmbloods to the thoroughbreds. The saddles break in easily with oil and riding, and have held up to a full riding and show schedule with very little breakdown. The adjustable blocks in the saddle are perfect for tayloring the saddle to the individual rider.

Dislikes: I have noticed that the billet straps are shorter, so we have to go with longer girths than on most saddles.

Quality: Appears to be a quality saddle for the price.

Summary: Excellent saddle. I recommend it for all of my students that are looking for their first saddle in that price range.
