Manufacturer: Montana Mountain Horse
Model: Deluxe Trail Saddle
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: Purchased direct from the saddlemaker at www.MontanaMountainHorse.com for about $650.00 base plus $85 for tapadarros.

Likes: Great looking trail saddle. Got to customize to my preferences--so I got black leather, a royal blue suede seat, roses on the jockey and fenders and horse head tooled tapadarros (covered stirrups). Nice high cantle, fully rigged with rings and strings to add breast collar, rear cinch, breeching, crupper or just tie on saddlebags. Lightweight too--I was used to a 40 pound roper saddle--this is only about 30 pounds!! Comfortable ride--very well padded seat, narrow twist, fenders at just the right spot. Plus I added LegSavers(highly recommended). I also had them punch extra holes in the stirrup leathers for this shorty! The best thing is...it FITS my horse!! I had a heck of a time finding something for my QH cross--who also has some draft and gaited mixed in. He had no withers and other saddles were pinching and wearing white spots on his withers. I tried three of the trees they carry--draft, gaited and their flex tree. We ended up going with the 7" flex tree/full qh bars--and it is awesome! It fits, doesn't slip, and he gaits so easily with it. So looks, comfort, fit and the price is right--love it!!

Dislikes: Nothing, other than if I had to do it again...just for looks, I would add their mock wool fleece underside and extra silver conchos to dress it up. I would also add a latigo wrap to the horn.

Quality: Construction and quality are very good. The only thing I didn't like was that the Cheyenne roll on top of the cantle isn't doubled-you can see the raw edges. However, I can say after riding extensively in it for 2 years now--it has held up extremely well. Very durable, usable and nice looking!

Summary: Excellent customer service with this company too. Really listened and worked with me through the saddle fitting and customizing just the way I liked it, (even when I changed my mind a few times!) I just bought a 2nd saddle from them as well--their Broadview Trail--it's a little dressier and I got their open gullet style to keep my horse a little cooler on long rides. It's only 27 lbs and my old mare literally breathed a sigh of relief when I put in on her!
