Purchase: I bought this saddle from a Torsion dealer in Canada for about 1200.00 Cdn + the necessary pads, leathers, stirrups, girth, import tax, regular taxes and shipping. I have a very sensitive, hard to find a saddle for half TB horse. I bought it as an alternative(far less expensive) to the English Ballance System, which was recommended for my mare.

Likes: My horse immediately moved much more freely. I find it very comfortable--it is like sitting on a couch--and I feel very secure in it. My horse was very girthy in every other saddle-this one she accepts far more gracefully. Still some issues but much better.

Dislikes: You must buy a certain type of pad that for treeless saddle, so you really have to add on a pad (around $175.00cdn each)on to the cost. I feel I have to have at least 2 pads so I can have a clean one ready. I don't mount from the ground with this saddle as this saddle might turn if you put too much weight on one side. While riding, I have never had a problem and in fact I feel very very secure.

Quality: It is made very well. Soft, strong leather, everything says quality when you look at this saddle.

Summary: I am glad I bought this saddle!
