Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I got this saddle on ebay paid $349 for the saddle.
Likes: The color is about all I like about this saddle. It was black.
Dislikes: I thought I'd try out a cheaper TREELESS saddle. I was used to a Bob Marshall saddle .
Quality: The stirrup rigging is made of cheap nylon straps. I didn't feel the horse underneath me at all like I do in my Bob Marshall saddle. The main material in the Hilason is very stiff and does not comform to the horse's back well. I took the saddle apart and found lots of glue and not much solid workmanship. The entire rigging is glued in between two kinds of material, one kind of rubbery and the other like foam.
Summary: I don't think I want to ride this saddle in an endurance ride. I would be afraid the stirrup leathers would come off. They are also made of too thin nylon straps. I let a few friends try it and they didn't like it either. Overall I believe if they would do some more research they could actually come up with something ridable. For me ... I rather ride my Bob Marshall saddle.
