Purchase: This saddle is available in Carmel color in both state line tack and Dover, but I ordered it from a store in the UK. They sell it in black there. I paid 500$.

Likes: The material is very sturdy! It is great for people who do not have time to clean and have a lot of horses to ride. I would go swimming with this saddle!

Dislikes: The build is terrible. It is VERY hard to keep your lower leg in the right position. They often slide back, and the flexiblocks offer no help at all. The saddle cannot be adjusted because of the cair panels, which are really not all that comfortable for the horse. It is VERY hard to change the gullet and usually requires three people. I feel more comfortable riding bareback than in this saddle. My horse strongly agreed to. I have fallen out of this saddle many times because I find it very hard to be able to grip. I broke my pelvis while riding in this saddle. I would give it no stars, but that is not an option.

Quality: The gullet is held in with screws. But they usually only work one or two times, leaving it to be held together with velcro. It is made with a very tough plasticy material.

Summary: I would not recommend this saddle for anyone. There is no grip or support. A terrible saddle.
