Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle from a tack shop in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I paid approx. $1200.00 for it, and since it came as a package I also recieved HDR stirrup leathers, stirrups, an HDR girth, and a very nice saddle pad as well as an HDR bridle.
Likes: I like everything about this saddle! It is very comfortable, and the leather is very supple. It didn't seem to need any time to break in! The leather is also a beautiful color (Hazelnut). It is a great saddle for jumping but also is built so you can do flatwork easily.
Dislikes: There is nothing that I don't like about this saddle!
Quality: The construction and quality of this saddle are great! It seems to be made of a great quality leather that is very smooth and supple.
Summary: This is a great saddle that I really love! It is nice enough so that you can show in it, but it is also functional so you can use it as an everyday, working saddle.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
