Purchase: My mom got me this saddle for me for Christmas from the horseman's outlet she bought it for $750 US dollars
Likes: I love this saddle! it is extremely comfortable(you can ride in it all day) I have had no problem fitting it it fit all 6 of my horses, and my friends horses too! It puts you into the correct position, and keeps you right there over jumps and on the flat. I think it is a great saddle for training, sowing, eventing, and whatever you want to do b/c you can always feel the horse so, you can feel leads, and diagonals better. Also, when you are riding a line if your horse over jumps you can feel better how you should react if they are scattering or going fine. This is a great saddle and it was worth every penny!
Dislikes: The only thing I dislike about this saddle is that you cant be lazy! Since it is made from french leather it is soft so you have to give it a good conditioning about once a month (really clean it well get everywhere)if you do that it holds up great, and I could not ask for a better saddle.
Quality: It is made from french leather and i padded nicely, and fits a wide range of horses, my horse have never had a saddle sore once!The knee roll is in the perfect place and works how it is supposed to, not just there for looks.
Summary: I absolutely love this saddle and if i had the chance I would buy it again time, after time!
