Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I purchased this saddle from my local tack dealer as a used saddle considering a new one would be much too expensive for me. It cost me $500.
Likes: I love the position this saddle puts you in, it has definitely improved my equitation. It's also a long lasting saddle, when I bought it you couldn't find a flaw, the only difference from it being new was the fact that it's broken in. The deep seat and knee rolls also offer me a lot of security, it's almost effortless to retain the correct position. Lastly I can't tell you how many comments I have gotten on what a gorgeous saddle this is.
Dislikes: The flaps seem to be a little bit long, nothing that affects your ride, though.
Quality: This saddle is made to last, it's holding up better than the Crosby I used to ride in.
Summary: This is the best saddle I've ever owned or ridden in. I doubt I'll ever be as happy in another saddle.
Usefulness Rating: 3.16667 out of 5.
