Category: Barrel Saddles
Purchase: I purchased this saddle on line from horse tack.com because of the style and the steele equi-fit tree. This seems to be the only tree that fits my horse well. I payed $1088.
Likes: I liked the style, look, and the fit of the tree to me and my horse. Kim at horsetack.com was a wonderful help in fitting the saddle to my horse and working on trying to get the saddle I wanted.
Dislikes: I really liked the look of the saddle in the picture. However, I never received the saddle in the picture. The look was completely different on the first saddle. I was informed that they would build me another like the picture. This one was closer but the quality was worse. I don't think Saddleking appreciated my request. The tooling was not uniform and they didn't fully tool the pommel, the silver is cheap, and the attention to detail is poor.
Quality: The quality seems good, but the attention to detail is poor. I love the way the Steele equi-fit tree fits my horse.
Summary: I would not purchase a Saddleking saddle again. I would highly recommend the Equi-fit tree and Horsetack.com.
