Rider's Choice
G.W. Crate Master Series 15" Barrel Saddle
Barrel Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Rider's Choice
Model: G.W. Crate Master Series 15" Barrel Saddle
Category: Barrel Saddles

Purchase: Won this item for $500.00 through an Ebay auction after having done extensive research of various manufacturers and components used by both off the rack and custom saddle makers. The Ebay listing was very detailed and accurate with the price being well below the market average. I just couldn't resist.

Likes: I absolutely love everything about this saddle. It is extremely well constructed with quality components, just as described, and beautiful beyond belief. I purchased a saddle from another vendor for my daughter because Rider's Choice did not have something she liked, and the side by side comparison left that other manufacturer in the dust. The Crates Barrel Saddle is absolutely perfect.

Dislikes: There is nothing I don't like. The only thing I can think is that the leather was so thick in the fenders that I had to purchase a stirrup turner to alleviate the pain in my knee.

Quality: Superb quality and construction. Do the research yourself and compare. Mine came with a Steele Equi-Fit tree, which is the best in the industry.

Summary: A nice saddle is a major expenditure and for a small time pleasure enthusiasts like myself, the nice major manufacturers were out of reach and quite honestly, I wondered if they were really worth that much. I generally buy middle of the road that way I am not disappointed when purchases to not measure up when buying top of the line or the poor quality of the cheap stuff. In this case, buying middle of the road netted a much nicer product than I ever could have hoped for.
