Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I took it out for a trial ride. It cost about 850$ new at the Equi-products store.

Likes: It looked nice, and the seat and knee roll were really soft. It had a pretty light brown piping around the seat.

Dislikes: It was so slippery and stiff. I had two saddles out for trial and after riding in this one for five minutes at all gaits, even hand-galloping, I hated it. I got off and rode in the other saddle for the rest of the ride. I would not buy this saddle if you payed me to! It might be OK used though, because the leather was like plastic and about an eighth of an inch thick, so if it was broken in it would be ok.

Quality: Good overall with billets that were strong.

Summary: It would probably be Ok as a trail ride saddle for someone who only wears chaps and rides on flat ground at the walk and trot. I don't think it would be very good for jumping though, and cantering is not so nice.
