Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle online for about $900. I had just bought a new horse with a wider tree than my old one, so I needed a saddle to fit.
Likes: The black leather is gorgeous, and it broke in very quickly. It had a comfortable medium deep seat that allows me to move freely on the flat or over fences. The flap is an average length that allows for a wide range of stirrup lengths. The seat is also very soft, and I can go on long trail rides without being sore the next day. Everyone who rides in it is always telling me just how comfortable it is.
Dislikes: For some reason this saddle gives me a more forward seat. It's not that big of a deal, I just have to be more careful when I'm in a dressage ring.
Quality: The quality is topnotch. The stirrup leathers have caused a little bit of rubbing, but my leg covers it, so I'm not too worried. I've had my saddle for five months, and it still looks brand new.
Summary: An excellent saddle for anyone who doesn't want the hassle of a separate jumping and dressage saddle. I recommend it to any and all.
Usefulness Rating: 2.75 out of 5.
