Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: Paid $290+ tax at a local tack shop

Likes: Puts me in a great position on the flat and over fences, fits my high withered thoroughbred VERY well. (I have the regular tree) Leather is excellent and not super stiff. Seat is nice and soft.

Dislikes: My only complaint is that it has short billets which I did not realize till I had already gotten it home to the barn and my girth was WAY too short. It does not affect the performance of the saddle at all, I just wish I had known when I purchased my girth so I'd have gotten a longer one.

Quality: The construction and quality is excellent. I would put this on level with the HDR advantage line and the M. Toulouse saddles. It's perfectly usable for showing at any level.

Summary: I am extremely impressed with this saddle. I was looking at used crosby's and HDR's and the like in the $600 range when my horse got ill with strangles and ate up much of my saddle budget. I had seen this saddle on line but was quite skeptical as most of the saddle I've seen in this range are like cardboard. This saddle is a fabulous buy!
