Blackburn
Synthetic 18" All purpose
All Purpose Saddles



Manufacturer: Blackburn
Model: Synthetic 18" All purpose
Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: My local tack store, Thunder Bay Feeds, Ontario, offered a sale on saddle packages. I am new to riding english so I didn't want to spend alot of money yet. They had a Blackburn saddle package available. I bought a black, 18" synthetic all purpose. The package is complimented $349.99 plus pst &gst.

Likes: This saddle is very smart looking. My horse is mildly broadbacked with low withers and I have had difficulty fitting her before. I have been trying other peoples saddles at every opportunity and found that the Blackburn , for whatever reason fit my horse very well. When I found out the competitive price I immediately phoned and paid for one . My friend picked it up for me a week or so later. My first ride in it was a 20km trail ride through various terrain. My horse and I were both happy and comfortable during and after the ride. I found the saddle very comfortable and it kept me in the right position. The saddle cleans up easily with warm water. Overall I am very happy with the saddle.

Dislikes: I can't really think of anything I don't like about it. It would have been nice if it came with a cover.

Quality: The construction seems completely acceptable. This saddle comes with 3 trees and I found that changing it was very easy. It is a sturdy saddle and nothing about it seems cheap.

Summary: I really like this saddle and will be looking for a Blackburn Dressage. It is very smart looking. The saddle and matching black bridle look very snazzy on my liver mare. Very happy with this saddle and would recommend it to anyone.
